On 20 October 1968, in Mexico City's Olympic Stadium, the closing ceremonies had just been completed when the announcer asked everyone to remain seated. The last marathoner came in hours ago and medals had already been awarded. Akhwari from Tazania, covered with blood, hobbled into the light. He had taken a horrible fall early in the race and endured a trampling before he could get back on his feet. Why after sustaining multiple injuries would you ever get up and proceed to the finish line? Akhwari said this: My country did not send me over 11,000 kilometers to start a race, but to finish one. Jesus sent you to finish the race.
