She Persisted: Florence Griffith Joyner

Considered the fastest woman of all time, Florence Griffith Joyner, also known as Flo Jo, set two world records in 1988 that still stand today. But getting there wasn't easy, and Flo Jo had to overcome many challenges along the way. The first time she qualified for the Olympics, America boycotted the event, so she couldn't go. But she kept training, and won a silver medal in 1984 and three gold medals in 1988! She became a hero to millions around the world, and an inspiration to everyone to persist in your dreams.

In this chapter book biography by Rita Williams-Garcia, the award-winning author of One Crazy Summer, readers learn all about Flo Jo's amazing life. The She Persisted series, inspired by Chelsea Clinton's enormously popular picture book, celebrates women who stood up, spoke up and rose up against the odds! With black and white interior illustrations throughout by Gillian Flint, this early chapter book will inspire young readers to imagine how they too could change the world.
