Who to Believe?
by More Sower's Seeds

Let me tell you about a little girl who was born into a very poor family in a shack in the backwoods of Tennessee. She was the 20th of 22 children, prematurely born and frail. Her survival was doubtful. When she was four years old, she had double pneumonia and scarlet fever - a deadly combination that left her with a paralyzed and useless left leg. She had to wear an iron leg brace. Yet she was fortunate in having a mother who encouraged her.
Well, this mother told her little girl, who was very bright, that despite the brace and leg, she could do whatever she wanted to do with her life. She told her that all she needed to do was to have faith, persistence, courage and an indomitable spirit.
So at nine years of age, the little girl removed the leg brace and took the step the doctors told her she would never take normally. In four years, she developed a rhythmic stride, which was a medical wonder. Then the girl got the notion, the incredible notion, that she would like to be the world's greatest woman runner. Now, what could she mean - be a runner with a leg like that?
At age 13, she entered a race. She came in last - way, way last. She entered every race in high school, and in every race she came in last. Everyone begged her to quit. However, one day, she came in next to last. And then there came a day when she won a race. From then on, Wilma Rudolph won every race that she entered.
Wilma went to Tennessee State University, where she met a coach named Ed Temple. Coach Temple saw the indomitable spirit of the girl, that she was a believer and that she had great natural talent. He trained her so well that in 1960 she went to the Olympic Games in Rome.
There she was pitted against the greatest woman runner of the day, a German girl named Jutta Heine. Nobody had ever beaten Jutta. But in the 100-meter dash, Wilma Rudolph won. She beat Jutta again in the 200 meters. Wilma had just earned two Olympic gold medals.
Finally came the 400-meter relay. It would be Wilma against Jutta once again. The first two runners on Wilma's team made perfect hand-offs with the baton. But when the third runner handed the baton to Wilma, she was so excited she dropped it, and Wilma saw Jutta taking off down the track. And it was impossible that anyone can catch this fleet and nimble girl. But Wilma did just that! Wilma Rudolph earned her third Olympic gold medal.
And that day she made history as she became the first woman ever to win three gold medals in the same Olympic games. And they'd said she would never walk again...

该相信谁?
摩尔•索尔

请听我讲一个幸运小女孩的故事。她生在田纳西州人烟稀少地区居住在破旧房屋里的一个穷人家里。她是家里二十二个孩子中的第二十个,她出生时未足月,很虚弱,别人不知道她到底能不能活下来。到了她四岁那一年,她同时患了肺炎和猩红热,这场病使她的左腿瘫痪了,她不得不用一个铁制的腿支架。幸运的是,她的母亲一直在鼓励她。
这位母亲告诉她那聪明的小女孩说,尽管她要用支架和有一条瘫痪的腿,但她想做什么就可以去做什么。母亲对女儿说,她需要的是坚定的信念、毅力、勇气和不屈不挠的精神。
小女孩在九岁时拿掉了腿上的支架,迈出了医生说她永远不可能迈出的一步。四年后,她就能有节奏地大踏步走,这在医学上是一个奇迹。接着,她有一个念头,一个不可思议的想法,她想成为世界上最优秀的女跑步运动员。她究竟是怎么想的,拖着一条病腿,她能成为一个跑步运动员吗?
在十三岁,她参加了一项比赛,她跑在最后——远远地落在后面。上高中时,她参加了每一项比赛,她每次都是最后一名。所有人都恳求她不要再继续了。可是,有一天,她跑了一个倒数第二。又有一天,她终于赢得了一项比赛。从那时起,威尔玛•鲁道夫在她参加的每一项比赛中取胜。
后来,威尔玛到了田纳西州州立大学,在那里,她认识了一位名叫埃德•坦普尔的教练。坦普尔教练在这个女孩子身上看到了一股不屈不挠的精神,她有坚定的信念,又有与生俱来的才华。坦普尔教练把她训练得非常好,在一九六零年,她到罗马去参加奥运会。
在罗马奥运会上,她与当时世界上最优秀的女跑步运动员,德国的尤达•海因展开较量,尤达是不可战胜的。可是在一百米短跑比赛时,威尔玛赢了。在二百米比赛中,她打败了尤达。威尔玛夺得了两块奥运会金牌。
最后的四百米接力赛将是威尔玛与尤达之间的再一次较量。威尔玛的队在开始的两棒都做得很好,但当第三个运动员把接力棒交给威尔玛时,她竟然激动得把接力棒落在地上,这时,威尔玛正好看到尤达起跑。任何人都将无法追得上这位飞跑的姑娘。但威尔玛做到了!威尔玛•鲁道夫获得了第三枚奥运会金牌。
那天,她作为第一个在同一届奥运会上连获三枚金牌的创纪录者而载入史册。而人们却曾经说过她永远都不会走路了……
