★★★★★ "Captivating journey " - Reader Review
By the time Spud Alford was twenty-one, he had strengthened his athletic skills enough to become a serious contender for the American team at the 1980 Moscow Olympics.
Fate, however, had a different idea of how the young track and field star should outpace his competition.
Four years later, it looked like Alford might finally get his shot. Again, fate intervened, and this time, young Alford confronted a cancer diagnosis.
