GRAND RAPIDS TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) - Rockford native Dathan Ritzenhein already has three Olympic games under his belt, but that doesn't appear to be slowing him down.
Fresh off his ninth-place finish in the 10,000-meter run at the World Championships in Moscow, Ritzenhein returned home to be the keynote speaker at Cornerstone University's Champions of Character event Monday night.
He shared some personal stories about how he was so focused on running and succeeding that it affected relationships with friends and teammates.
He also talked with 24 Hour News 8 about the use of performance-enhancing drugs by world-class athletes.
Ritzenhein has been tested 21 times in the past year. Half of those came outside of the timeframe directly around a competition.
