'Sharing Miracles' Television Program to Feature Olympic Legends Mark Spitz and Bruce Jenner

WASHINGTON, July 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With the world's attention focused on the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing this month, Sharing Miracles -- a 30-minute Sunday morning public affairs television program that tells the compelling and inspirational stories of real patients -- will feature two of America's greatest Olympic athletes, Gold Medalists Mark Spitz and Bruce Jenner.

Since retiring from athletics, he has been a sports commentator, actor, and author; his most recent release is an inspirational book entitled Finding the Champion Within.

However, these achievements were not attained without a struggle. As a chi
