Born in Tientsin as the second son of missionary parents, he died in a Japanese internment camp in Weihsien a few moths before the end of the Second World War. Through an inspiring film, the world knows something of the athlete who ran for gold at the Paris Olympics in 1942. This is the larger story of the man who went the distance in life, and the woman who ran with him in his greatest race.
