Wilma Rudolph was a Divya woman, who won the gold medal at the Olympics on her own initiative. He was born on June 23, 1940, in St Bethlehem, Tennessee. It comes under the United States.
Rudolph’s biography is quite inspiring. For those who are Divyaang and for them there is no Divyaang. He was polio at two and a half years old. Due to polio he could not walk properly till the age of 11. But Rudolph was so enthusiastic that he won 3 gold medals in the race for the 1960 Olympics at the age of 21.
He was born in a very poor black family. The black and white people in the US had a great deal of differences in that time. But when he returned to his hometown after winning the gold, a banquet was organized in his honor. For the first time in this feast, white and black people were involved in their honor.
This event was considered by Wilma as her greatest victory. Wilma Rudolf died on November 12, 1994 in Brentwood, Tennessee, United States.
