Wilma Rudolph


I want to study Wilma Rudolph because, she was the first American women to win three gold medals in track and field events at the Olympics.  I want to be in the Olympics one day and try my best and never give up like Wilma Rudolph.  I found that she was 16 years old when she first started the Olympics, I also found out she twisted her ankle because she fell in a hole, which is very interesting to me because I never knew that.  I wonder if she would still be in the Olympics if she was still alive!

um... i learned that she went back to school to get a degree in political science,
her first memory was of lying on a quilted blanket and pastel green pillows,
and she married a man thirty-two years older than her.
