"I started running when I was in primary school," says Eliud Wainaina, a 21-year-old champion long distance runner who came to America and won 14 medals competing for Dodge City Community College, where he studied sports psychology. The mile is his specialty. "At the end of my career I would like to be a marathoner," he says. Kenyan's have dominated the Boston Marathon, winning 13 of the past 15 years. "When I finish school I will probably be going back to Nairobi."
