This simple yet dynamic novel narrates the challenges faced by Asaffa, an eleven-year old boy, who tries to emulate his idol, the legendary runner of the 10,000 meters, Haile Gebreselassie, who has just been crowned Olympic champion in the Sydney Olympic Games of 2000. The youngster’s great athletic gifts should be accompanied by sacrifices he would only be too glad to make, but the reality of his daily life doesn’t seem to correspond to his dream of being a champion.
