Chinese farmer Pedicabs 30,000 miles to London!!

I am absolutely blown away that this man, at this age, with a Chinese rickshaw (which are notoriously unreliable), and with so little money that he worked along the way, worked his ass off to make it to the London Olympics! He deserves a Gold medal in my book!



A Chinese farmer has spent the last two years biking more than 30,000 miles across 16 countries with one simple goal in mind: to see the London Olympics.
BBC News reports when 57-year-old Chen Guanming watched the Olympic flag get passed to London's mayor in 2008 in Beijing he was inspired to attend the 2012 games. He decided to travel the only way he could: by rickshaw. 
The story sounds too amazing to be true, but Chen, who is from the Jiangsu province in eastern China, has a passport, pictures, press clippings and book full of messages from around the world to document his journey.
He met with intense heat in Malaysia and Vietnam, and with deadly floods in Thailand. When he was denied a visa into Burma, he backtracked and cycled to Tibet where he scaled mountains. Once in Turkey, he was snowed in for four days.
