Be prepared to be inspired as Olympian and Congressman Jim Ryun speaks from experience about his remarkable life's journey. That journey has led him from being cut from the church baseball team to being rated by ESPN as the number one high school athlete of all time, beating Tiger Woods and LeBron James.
