My opinion About Wilma Rudolph1

I think that Wilma was an inspiring person and If i was her i would think what she was thinking when she was saying that when she runs she feels free and she doesn't feel like somebody is judging her or threatening.

My Opinion About Wilma Rudolph/And Different Girls Playing Sports2

I also think that she was a world wide runner she a great hero and she was a brave person.I think that Females have the right to play sports and not sit around the house and clean and watch the kids.Most females are brave and stronger than men and they only need a boost or encourage by somebody to just let them be good at something.

My Conclusion

Ti conclude,as you can see Wilma Rudolph was a strong and brave female she didn't care if her health was bad or she was about to die,all she cared about was her town and her knowing that she is going to have special title of herself when she died.
