Wilma Rudolph overcame polio to win three Olympic gold medals. South Korea's Im Dong-hyun won Olympic gold in archery, and he's legally blind. Race car driver Alex Zanardi lost both of his legs in a crash. Today he's a champion hand cyclist. This book spotlights 12 athletes from around the world who achieved greatness despite their disabilities. Each chapter includes attention-grabbing photos and fascinating facts. Sidebars go beyond the basics, and prompts invite readers to think for themselves. A Learn More page zooms in on the topic of accessibility.
