One of the greatest Olympic comeback stories you've never heard. 

Elizabeth Robinson

"Hero? I didn't think about anything like that.

I just wanted to win the race."

-Elizabeth Babe Robinson

 

She  Caught  a  Train... 

​​

  • She was the first woman to win an Olympic gold medal in Track and Field.  

  • She transformed tragedy into triumph winning a second gold medal in the 1936 Olympic Games.

  • At the age of 84, she carried the Olympic Torch as it blazed a path toward Atlanta, GA for the 1996 Olympic Games.

THIS IS HER LEGACY
