Peter Waswa's Olympic Dreams on Lenovo's blog / by Tadej Znidarcic

I've known and photographed Ugandan inline skaters for years. Now that I'm in NY, I'm still in touch with them and follow their successes and challenges. In December I met the skaters again and photographed their coach Peter Waswa at practice, at work and at home. Through ViewFind, a story-telling platform I collaborate with, Gavin O'Hara, Global Social Media Publisher at Lenovo, learned about Peter's story. He wrote a beautiful piece about Peter and his dreams that was now published on Lenovo's blog.

I'll continue following Peter and his teammates and I hope their Olympic dreams will come true!
