Gun to Tape

Six decades after Kenyan athletes first competed in the Olympics, the country prepares to send its strongest ever squad to the 2012 London Games. Leading the charge is David Rudisha, world champion and world record holder in the 800 meters and Edna Kiplagat, marathon world champion. Follow their journey as they endure gruelling training and face difficult personal battles for a chance to toe the starting line at the Olympic stadium. All in the hopes that they will return with sport’s biggest prize: an Olympic gold medal.
