New Delhi: Manoj Tiwary didn't know much about British athlete Derek Redmond before he bumped into a Youtube clip of former British 400m runner while searching for motivational videos on the internet.
"I was searching for motivational videos on Youtube when I glanced through Redmond's clip. That was the 400m semi-final at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. Redmond tore his hamstring at the midway and hopped his way to the finishing point as crowd gave him a standing ovation. That clip was an inspiration when I was cramping up with more than 20 runs to get to my ton," Tiwary told PTI in an interview.
He has been in and out of the team during the past one year but Tiwary knew that he needed one big knock.
