Unbeatable Betty: Betty Robinson, the First Female Olympic Track & Field Gold Medalist

At only sixteen years old, Betty Robinson became the first female gold medalist in track and field in the 1928 Olympics and an overnight sensation. She was set for gold again and had her eyes on the 1932 Olympics. But her plans changed forever when a horrible plane crash left her in a wheelchair, with one leg shorter than the other.

Betty didn't let that stop her. In less than five years, she relearned how to stand, to walk, and finally to run again and try to taste gold once more in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. With Joanie Stone's colorful illustrations and Allison Crotzer Kimmel's inspirational text, as well as an author's note detailing Betty's life after the Olympics, this biography is a reminder of how it takes more than sheer talent to be a champion; it also takes an unbeatable spirit of determination.
