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