Publisher's Summary

From Chelsea Clinton and Alexandra Boiger, the number one New York Times best-selling team behind She Persisted, comes a new book featuring women athletes who overcame and inspired - just in time for the Olympics!

Throughout history, women have been told that they couldn't achieve their dreams, no matter how hard they tried. Women athletes have faced their own unique set of challenges, across countless sports and levels of play. In this third She Persisted book, Chelsea Clinton introduces listeners to women who have excelled in their sports because of their persistence. 

She Persisted in Sports is an audiobook for everyone who has ever aimed for a goal and been told it wasn't theirs to hit, for everyone who has ever raced for a finish line that seemed all too far away, and for everyone who has ever felt small or unimportant while out on the field.

Alexandra Boiger's inspiring work shows listeners of all ages that, no matter what obstacles come their way, they have the power to persist and succeed.

This audiobook features: Margaret Ives Abbott, Gertrude Ederle, Mildred "Babe" Didrikson Zaharias, Wilma Rudolph, Jean Driscoll, Mia Hamm (and the 1996 Olympic soccer team), Kristi Yamaguchi, Venus and Serena Williams, Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings, Diana Taurasi, Simone Biles, Ibtihaj Muhammad, and Jocelyne and Monique Lamoureux.
