Bethany Hamilton
The author personally thinks that "Bethany Hamilton has become a source of inspiration to millions through her story of faith, determination, and hope."
"Whether it's football or golf, there's little doubt about the
of sports." It's very important! Me and the author both agree.
Michael Ore and Bethany Hamilton both faced a lot of there main challenges as children

They both are successful and have overcome they're challenges.

They still play the sports they love even after they faced big barriers.

Both of there stories have been in movies (Blind Side and Soul Surfer)
"In the 2009 NFL draft, Michael Oher was selected 23rd over all by the Baltimore Ravens."
"During the 2012-13 season, Oher helped take the Ravens all the way to the super Bowl XLVII".
"A well- known football player,he received first team All-America honers from USA Today and was given the opportunity to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl."
"In his sophomore season in 2006 Michael Oher became a breakout star in the highly competitive SEC after a move to his more natural position at left tackle."
"By the beginning of his senior year, Oher was the starting left tackle on the varsity football team". "He quickly became a top football prospect in the state of Tennessee."
"After losing over 60% of her blood, and making it through several surgeries without infection, Bethany was on her way to recovery with an unbelievably positive attitude."
"Miraculously, just one month after the attack, Bethany returned to the water to continue pursuing her goal to become a professional surfer."
"Through the platform of professional sport, Bethany has been able to touch a large number of people with her message, charitable efforts, and overall spirit."
"Just over a year after the attack she took 1st place in the Explorer Women's division of the 2005 NSSA National Championships winning her first National title".
