Lopez Lomong is a two-time Olympian for his adopted country, the U.S.A. Lopez Lomong is the American dream: a man who brought his focus and promise to this country. A man of strong conviction and strong focus, Lopez Lomong shows us hints of his tremendous talent, and drive. This winter, Lopez ran a 1:46 for the 800 meters, won the Millrose Mile in 3:51.24 and then, again at the Armory, ran the A standard for 5,000 meters, with his 13:07.00, which is the pending American record for the 5,000 meters indoors.
The Shoe Addicts, seeing greatness, ask the viewer one question: What will Lopez do in Moscow?
