The Fog Runner

What is it like to run a race without seeing the finish, much like in a fog?  A fog that you can’t escape, a fog with which you were born.  Radoslav Zlatanov, the fastest Bulgarian Paralympic athlete and one of the fastest runners in the world, shares his life story about growing up from a baby who could neither see or walk, to a multiple medalist.
