Personal Fact of Louis Zamperini

Louis Zamperini was an Olympic athlete and a US prisoner of war survivor (World War II), who later became a Christian evangelist. Being born into a non-English speaking family in the United States of America started out as a struggle for Louis Zamperini. However, he overcame the difficulties and neglect from his peers through focusing on running.

His interest towards running led to his enrolment in the school track team. An outstanding performer in long distance running, Louis Zamperini went on to compete the 1936 Summer Olympics and had planned to compete in the 1940 Olympic Games as well. However with the onset of the World War II, the games were cancelled and he enrolled into the US Army Air Corps.

He was in a plane that crashed into the Pacific Ocean and though he survived the crash, he was taken prisoner of war by the Japanese army. Louis Zamperini was released after the war ended two years later. Upon his return to the United States, he began his career as a Christian evangelist. His life has been an inspiration to many and a number of books, documentaries and feature films have been based upon his life story.
