what has happened since Nike made a risk

Nike was asked by Michael Jordan if he could have his own shoe. They gave the rookie a chance, and they launched in 1985. The shoes were a big hit and Nike was glad they ventured out and made the risk. In 1986 they came out with the second shoe. They kept making shoes until the 23rd shoe in 2008. They were going to stop on that number because that was his basketball number. The shoe included his greatest achievements on the sole, his DNA pattern on the outside, and his fingerprint on the tongue of the shoe. they continued to make more shoes because they still were a hit. He retired in 2004 when he released the 18th shoe. They thought or sure that was the last shoe but they have been releasing shoes ever since.

Rudy's perseverance

When Rudy was a child he always wanted to be a great football player. But there was a problem, he was shorter then the kids he was playing against so he had a hard time tackling them. He was also getting bad grades in school because he was dyslexic. Later in his life he still wanted to be a great football player but on a larger scale, on the Notre Dame team. Since he didn't have good grades he wasn't accepted in the school, therefore he wasn't able to be on the team. He entered another school to get his grades up to hopefully become a player on the team. He worked for his goal as hard as he can and got to be on the team.
