Wilma Unlimited: How Wilma Rudolph Became the World's Fastest Woman

Format: Paperback

Availability: In stock


Women's History


Wilma Rudolph did not have a likely path to the 1960 Olympic Games. Who would have thought that a severely underweight baby and sickly child who lost the use of her leg to polio would eventually win three Olympic track races with all the world watching? Women weren’t thought to run very well at the time. Rudolph proved them all wrong.

Age group: school age.

Written by Kathleen Krull. Illustrated by David Diaz.
