An Olympic Dream: The Story of Samia Yusuf Omar by Reinhard Kleist
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Somalian Samia Yusuf Omar may have received last place in her heat in the 200 at the Beijing Olympics, but she still is training for the London Olympics. Stuck in her war torn country with not enough food and improper training facilities, she decides to join the exodus for Europe. But, thanks to the human traffickers who exist to ruin lives and take money, she never makes it. Depressing but necessary read about European immigration, but Omar never gives up hope of her Olympic Dream.
