Flagbearer

Description

Lopez Lomong, Olympic 5,000-meter runner for Team USA, is one of the Lost Boys of Sudan.

Runner Lopez Lomong holds a U.S. flag during training in Flagstaff, Ariz., ahead of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. He was the ceremonial flagbearer in the 2008 Olympics.

A U.S. citizen since 2007, Lopez remains deeply concerned for the plight of children in his homeland, which gained its independence in 2011 and by 2013 was embroiled in ethnic conflict.
