The 1991 World Championship 4 x 400 final - When the Brits beat the Americans - Black, Redmonds, Regis and Akabusi

I remember this well, Bambi on the opening leg, Derek Redmond soon to be famous for needing his father's help to finish the Olympic 400 metre final, Jon Regis doing a typically great 400 metre run (why did he not run it as an individual) and Kris Akabusi showing that on his day a 400 metre hurdles bronze medallist can beat a 400 metre flat gold medallist.

This post should please Jack Whitehall.
