Wilma Rudolph

This year class names have been inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement and have been named after people who have had a positive effect or inspired society.

 

Wilma Rudolph had a disease called polio from the age of five. She recovered but had a damaged left leg and foot at the age of twelve.  By the time she reached Secondary School she started to show promise in basketball and athletics. At the age of sixteen she qualified for the Olympics and went on to have an incredibly successful career as a sprinter in the 100 meters, 200 meters and 4 x 100 meter relay winning three gold medals and a bronze. She became a role model to black people and women all over the world especially in the United States of America with people looking up to her as a role model with tremendous determination.

Remember her story next time you are feeling stuck on an issue or feeling like you can never achieve your goal. Keep pushing and one day you could conquer the world!
