Summary
The son of illegal Mexican immigrants, Henry Cejudo surprised the world by winning an Olympic gold medal in wrestling for the U.S.A. in Beijing--the first American in sixteen years to win the gold medal in freestyle wrestling and the youngest American gold medalist ever in this event. Until he joined the U.S. Olympic team, he had never had three meals in a single day, never had his own bed, never even had a pillow. This is Henry's poignant memoir of growing up in a segment of the American population that is too often overlooked and underestimated, and of how he rose above the statistics and the dangers to become a winner.--From publisher description
