"Chill-Inducing Olympic Moments" from Esquire blog

From the Esquire Magazine website, writer Daniel Murphy in the "Blog of Lists" provides his "Five Most Chill-Inducing Olympic Moments" with accompanying You Tube videos.

The list starts off incredibly strong with British track star Derek Redmond being helped across the finish line by his father (video of which has now been made famous by Visa and a Morgan Freeman voiceover) and goes on to cover moments featuring the 1980 US Olympic Hockey Team and gymnast Kerri Strug vaulting her way to a team gold on one good leg.

The Redmond You Tube post is below and the other four "chill-inducing moments" can be found at the link to Murphy's post above.
