Olympic runner Lopez Lomong grew up in a small village in war-torn South Sudan. As one of the lost boys of South Sudan, he often found himself chased by armed militia—once running for three straight days. Lomong has since been training and racing for the United States with an appearance at the 2012 London Olympics in the 1500 meters.
