Here's the triumphant, true-life story of an Olympic hero...and just how far he came in order to become the fastest Olympic long distance runner the world has ever seen! Raised under oppressive conditions in one of the world's poorest countries, the Ethiopian boy named Haile Gebrselassie was born to run! When he wasn't laboring in his father's fields, young Haile would be running: the six miles to school and back, while doing chores or simply for pleasure at the end of a long, hard day! In an inspirational and artfully crafted motion picture, the climactic moment comes as the unstoppable Haile chases down his lifelong dream in a stirring Gold Medal performance at the Atlanta Olympic Games.
