Against the odds: Adrien Niyonshuti

Al Jazeera meets cyclist Adrien Niyonshuti who has overcome great adversity to represent Rwanda at London 2012.

    Focusing on mountain biking helps Adrien Niyonshuti forget the horrors of his past.

    He survived Rwanda's genocide but six of his brothers did not. Knowing that life can change at any moment is his motivation.

    Al Jazeera's Tania Page reports from South Africa.
