Lopez Lomong — Lost Boy Found

Tags: Active Catholics Sports

Olympian Lopez Lomong, pictured here with host and producer Jerry Sticker, began long-distance running at age 6 when Lomong and his family fled Janjaweed warriors in South Sudan. He escaped and was separated from his family, but Catholic missionaries took care of him at the Kakuma “Lost Boys” refugee camp in Kenya. The episode chronicles Lomong’s journey to become a U.S. citizen, compete in the Olympics, carry the U.S. flag at the 2008 games, and help the poor in South Sudan.
