  • Iraqi Javelin Thrower

    "A 1980 visit by officials from the Ministry of Youth, which was in charge of sports, changed everything. Al-Sammak was ordered to work at a swimming pool at a presidential compound in the Baghdad neighborhood of Radwaniyah.

    "I refused for two weeks. Then the order came: 'If you don't come with us we will execute you,'" Al-Sammak said."
