The couple then set up a hospital in a remote area of the country where they treat around 4,000 patients in a year and all for free.

Swimmer Katie Hoff made her first appearance in the Olympics at the age of 15 in 2004. She finished fifth in the 400 meter individual medley and seventh in the 200 meter individual medley. Three years later, she won the Gold Medal at Melbourne, Australia. In 2005, she won three gold medals at the FINA world championships. The US swimming world called her the best Female Athlete of the year. Speedo, a swimsuit maker, signed her on a ten year contract. It astounded the media because it is the longest contract ever signed, which shows the kind of faith the Americans have in her. With this kind of history behind her, she is a sure contender for the Gold in the 2008 Olympics. Good luck!
