In the 1960’s, Wilma Rudolph was considered the fastest woman in the world. She also was a civil rights and women’s rights pioneer. Here is what she said: “Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each one of us.”
It was at the 1960 Summer Olympics held in Rome, where Wilma Rudolph won three gold medals in track and field during a single Olympic Games. She was the first woman to achieve this title. Under Wilma Rudolph’s influence, track and field became a major presence in the United States.
Wilma Rudolph continues to inspire many today. I believe she lived her life full of passion, sharing her greatness with the world.
Let’s live our life with great passion, sharing our gifts with the world.
With much love,
