He was abducted. He was beaten. And he was nearly forced to become a boy solider in his war-torn homeland, Sudan. But he escaped in the night, ran three days, and was taken into a refugee camp in Kenya. He never owned a pair of shoes. He never owned a pen or paper and did schoolwork in the dust with his fingertips. His boyhood was the daily struggle of an orphan, and each day he would run an eighteen-mile lap around the refugee camp just to play a game of soccer. In his wildest dreams, Lopez Lomong couldn't even conceive that Nike would one day be his official sponsor, that he would graduate from college, and that he would represent his new home and bear the American flag in the Summer Olympics.
