Zlatan Ibrahimovic was born on October 3, 1981, in Malmö, Sweden. Zlatan's parents divorced when he was 2 which made him have a difficult childhood. Zlatan was known as a bicycle thief and a school bully because he really didn't have any support from his parents. At the age of 18, Zlatan made his professional debut for Malmö FF even when he had many problems at a young age. He then got signed to a dutch club, AFC Ajax. He then was transferred to Juventus F.C. where he led the Italian club to 2 Serie A Championships. At that time Zlatan had many haters because of all the trophies he was earning for his club. Many people threatened him but Zlatan was not going to give up on playing soccer. After years of playing with Juventus he forced a transfer to Inter Milan where more success followed him. Zlatan then got traded to F.C. Barcelona in 2009 for Samuel Eto’o. Here, Zlatan didn't quite fit in. Both his teammates and the fans didn't think Zlatan was meant to play for Barcelona so his teammates passed the ball less to him and the fans started to dislike Zlatan. His agent then quickly did whatever he could to transfer him to a new club. After Zlatan got transferred to Paris Saint-Germain he led the club to its first league title in 19 years and he didn't stop, even when he had many obstacles in the way.

Kayla Montgomery has multiple sclerosis which means when she runs it causes her legs to go totally numb. Kayla first fell when she was playing soccer and noticed a tingly feeling in her spine along with a lack of feeling in her legs. When Kayla found out what she was diagnosed with she decided that her disease wasn't going to hold her back from running. A solution to the problem would have been for her not to do any running activities because she then wouldn't get hurt too much. The bad thing about that is that she wouldn't be able to do what she likes which is running. another solution to the problem is that Kayla would run but at the end of each race her coach would catch her because when she stops running she feels a lot of pain and can't stand up properly for a while. The only bad thing about that is that she would have to be extremely careful while she is running because when she is about a mile into the race she begins to not feel her legs and she would have to learn to run with that problem. Kayla was determined to keep running as long as she could because she didn't know if she was going to be able to run tomorrow. As a result Kayla won many races and became one of the country's fastest young distance runner and could do what she loves.
