Wilma Rudolph was a runner."On September 7, 1960, Wilma Rudolph made Olympic history by becoming the first woman, not to mention the first African-American woman, to win three gold medals. Taking first place in both the 100-meter and 200-meter dash and in the 4x100 relay, Wilma Rudolph opened the door for women to compete in previously all-male track and field events. Graceful, fast and slender, the Italian press called Wilma Rudolph La Gazzella, the gazelle."(http://www.myblackhistory.net/Wilma_RudolphShe grew up with a poor family which made it also hard for her.

Luckily, her friend was able to get her to safety and stop some of her bleeding before she got to the hospital(http://myhero.com/hero.asp?hero=B_hamilton4_dnhs_US_2012)." She thought her dreams would be gone but she would not stop trying, but after a while she was surfing against the best in the world
Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier."On this day in 1947, Jackie Robinson, age 28, becomes the first African-American player in Major League Baseball when he steps onto Ebbets Field in Brooklyn to compete for the Brooklyn Dodgers.

*When she awoke to see she had no arm, she felt as if she were living a nightmare.

*She always stays strong to achieve her goals.She never gave up and eventually she did by having a big title.

*At only 13 years old, her dreams seemed as though they had been torn right from her grasp and shattered on the floor. But she would soon overcome the challenges of daily life without an arm, even exceed expectations.

*Now, she is surfing in competitions again and is one of the best in the world. (John).
