The Olympics are just about to get underway, but Lopez Lomong is not in London yet.
He’s returned to Flagstaff in order to finish his training.
Lopez says Flagstaff is the place that made him a world-class athlete, and he’s bringing some of his US teammates with him.
“It’s like I’m still a student here. I still run the same trails, they’re still the same distances. That’s why I’m bringing some of my friends, my teammates, the love of what Flagstaff has to offer to the world.”
