Good afternoon teacher and fellow classmates. I have selected the topic of Cathy Freeman and today I will show you how she has contributed vastly to Australian society since 1945. Forty-three years ago the remarkable Cathy Freeman ran her way into Australia’s heart as she earned Australia’s 100th Olympic gold medal and no athlete would wear the medal more appropriately. Catherine Astrid Salome Freeman is a former Australian sprinter specialising in the 4oo metre event. From the day she was born on February 16th 1973 she began building an outstanding legacy for herself.
The world’s greatest female athlete is a lot more than what she seems. She has done several remarkable things, other than winning the Olympics many times. She is much more than an amazing person and lots of people do not even know. Jackie Joyner-Kersee has won several honors in the Olympics. That is what most people know about her, and it is amazing but she has done more. “She is currently a motivational speaker and an advocate for children,” (jackiejoynerkersee.com). Jackie Joyner-Kersee’s life has influenced many people’s lives. Her major accomplishments/contributions to American society, including founding the Jackie Joyner-Kersee Youth Center Foundation and winning several Olympic games, helped her earn her place in history as an important
Have you ever been passionate about something, but scared of the unknown that is awaiting in the future? Bonnie Blair was a persistent speed skater who did not let the thought of being the youngest child of a recreational family get in the way of her achievements.

When establishing success of a athletic program it takes much more than meets the eye and many hours of hard work and dedication, Arizona Gymnastics is in a state of rebuilding who they are and can complete this task through organizational saga from learning how the program was established in the past, leading into current leadership politics of their organization, and finally using mimetic isomorphism for the future of Arizona GymCats.

Abby Hoffman is a former elite Canadian track and field athlete. Abby, her real name Abigail is Jewish and was born in Toronto in 1947. During her childhood, she learned to skate when she was only 3 and showed her interest in playing hockey when she was 9 years old (Abby Hoffman, 2017). Her inspiration of playing sports was watching her elder brothers, Paul and Muni who were Hockey players. Going back to the early times, Women have been a part of hockey and their popularity led to the creation of Ladies Ontario Hockey Association in the early 1920 forming teams like Aura Lee, North Toronto. However, after the Second World War when a lot of kids from 14,000 to 100,000 were seen playing Hockey, girls were sidelined (Plummer, 2014). Unfortunately,

One ball, one bat, one glove, and one great team of 9 girls is all you need to play my passion. I play softball, and I admire Jennie Finch because she loves softball just like me. Jennie is a famous pitcher, and I am a pitcher for my team, I would like to be just as fast and accurate as Jennie. Some day, I would like to meet Jennie and learn more about softball from her.
On August 16, 1963, a criminal was born. Larry Nassar. For over roughly 30 years he abused 150+ children in USA Gymnastics. The question of how this went on so long without being detected has lingered, but the answer is clear. It did not. It was detected, but covered up. Yet, the people least expected to know about it did. USA Gymnastics, an organization meant to protect gymnasts knew. They knew and because of that, it is brutally clear that USA Gymnastics is involved with the Larry Nassar cases because they covered up the abuse experienced by those gymnasts, many of the board members resigned, and there were many missed opportunities to protect these girls.
As difficult as it could have been for a woman to begin a career in a competitive sport back in the mid 1900s, Ann Meyers made sure to attain her dream of being a basketball player. Many women in the 1900s suffered a lot from discrimination, doubts and rights. Before Title IX passed, it was only right for women to stay at home and take care of their families. On the other hand, Ann grew up in San Diego with a family who taught her that she could do the same as her older brothers and play whatever sport she desired. Even as a young child, she was never interested in fashion; she lived and died for sports. Later
Barriers throughout someone’s lifetime could shatter them, or help them to build and become a better person. Either way, it is a decision one makes on their own.

Simone Biles was determined to become stronger from her challenges, mentally and physically.

Squirrel hunting can be very complicated. It can also be very simple. To hunt squirrel, the best weapon to use is a 22 rifle. A pellet gun would work, but if you want the squirrel dead with one shot, use a 22 rifle. The easiest way to kill a squirrel is to have one person on one side of a tree, and another person on the other side. You just shoot at the tree and force the squirrel to come out. If you’re by yourself it can get very nerve racking. with one person you just have to sit there and be very patient. In my opinion, two people can kill more squirrels
“My mother taught me very early to believe I could achieve any accomplishment I wanted to. The first was to walk without braces” (“Rudolph Quotes and Sayings”). When Wilma was young, she had polio and was told that she would never be able to walk again. But, she ignored that and proved that she could do the best she could; by winning 3 gold medals in track & field. Wilma Rudolph has made an impact in track & field by being African American and the first woman to win 3 gold medals in a single Olympics.
