Transcript of JAYLA AND ZANE

Bethany Hamilton is a true survivor of a shark attack.
At the age of thirteen on October 31,2003, Bethany was attacked by a 14-foot tiger shark while surfing off Kauai's North Shore.
The attack left Bethany with a severed left arm.
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.
Lifeguards and doctors believe her strong water sense and faith in God helped get her through the traumatic ordeal.
Miraculously, just one month after the attack, Bethany returned to the water to continue pursuing her goal to become a professional surfer.
The 63 - yard kick lifted New Orleans Saints to a 19-17 victory over the Detroit Lions , and in the process helped transform Dempsey into a folk hero in the city hosting the Super Bowl on Sunday, the rare Saints player to hold a prominent N.F.L record before the Sean Payton era.
It quickly became apparent that when reflecting upon his football career , Dempsey seemed to take more delight discussing the hits he had delivered than kicks he had made.
He wistfully recalled how, in high school and college, if his coaches wanted someone on the opposing team knocked out, they usually called on him to deliver a teeth-rattling hit.
Tom Dempsey former N.F.L kicker, with serious conditions.
Tom Dempsey was born without toes on his right foot who in November 1970- after a long night of drinking and debauchery in the French Quarter of New Orleans- set the league record for the longest field goal in a regular season game.
Now 66, Dempsey sat recently with his wife at the dinging room table in the modest 1,500 -square- foot home they share with their daughter, Ashley , and their grandson, Dylan, in this New Orleans suburb.
When she was young, she barely survived.
She was born prematurely, weighing only 4.5 pounds -- and the doctor doubted she would survive.
She developed pneumonia and polio as a child, rendering her disabled for most of her childhood.
For several years, her mother, brother or sister had to massage her legs four times a day, and then she had to wear a metal brace for several years.
A few years later, Wilma practiced in a track meet at Tuskegee Institute, where she lost every single race.

He also performed poorly as a student, repeating first grade and second grade and attending 11 different schools during his first nine years as a student.
Oher's estranged father, was murdered while Oher was a senior in high school.
As a result, Michael Jr. was in- and- out of foster homes and frequently homeless.

Athletes Barriers
Jesse Owens
Bethany Hamilton and Wilma Rudolph
Both broke a barrier
Was attacked by a shark
She had her problem when she was born
They both had to be taken care of.
Both had something wrong with them while young
Both of their recoveries lasted a while
Had a problem with her leg instead of arm
Wasn't attacked by anything
She more trouble to do things
She had an injury not a disease
She had trouble with her arm not leg
Lost 60% of her blood!
