Famed champion runner from Burundi in Africa, Gilbert Tuhabonye, spoke at the James & Nancy Gaertner Performing Arts Center Wednesday.
Tuhabonye managed to escape from a tribal attack against him and other students at his school there. He was badly burned in the incident.
He eventually came to the United States. He explained how he survived the ordeal . . . .
Tuhabonye now lives in Austin and is an award-winning running coach.
