Special appearance by Billy Mills. Billy Mills shocked the world at the 1964 Olympics and came from behind to win the gold medal in the 10k race. He is still the only American to ever win a gold medal in the 10k event. His win was an upset that has been called the second greatest moment in Olympic history. Billy Mills, Oglala Lakota (Sioux), was raised on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. He has dedicated his life to serving American Indian communities.
