We have shared Lopez Lomong’s journey — from life as a lost boy in Sudan, to finding a new home in America, to his rise as an athlete.
Now, we want to show you what a day looks like for Lopez as he trains for the Olympics. World Vision photographer Jon Warren traveled to Flagstaff, Arizona, to spend a day with Lopez before he left to compete in London.
