With every single punch 20-year old Isaac Torres gets closer to his dream. In less than 3 weeks he will try out for the 2012 Olympic trails, a moment he's been waiting his entire life.
Never in a million years did Isaac think he would be here, going for his dreams to make the Olympic team.
Born and raised in Mission, Isaac spent most of his life in the ring. His living room displays a life time full of achievements. Isaac trains twice a day, six times a week. His diet is strict, his routines are rigorous.
He says its what you have to do to go for the gold.
James Gogue has been training Isaac for the past year. He says he's one of the few fighters he's seen here in the upper valley who has what it takes.
Isaac is only a few fights away from joining team USA in the 2012 Olympics.
But winning a medal isn't the only thing on his agenda. He hopes to be an inspiration to kids worldwide.
