About Wilma Rudolph

Despite enduring many health issues throughout her childhood, Wilma Rudolph became the first American woman to win three gold medals in track and field at a single Olympic Games. Rudolph was born prematurely in 1940 and had many health issues early in her childhood. At one point, Rudolph’s doctors even told her she would never walk as the result of issues with one of her legs. Yet, with great determination, physical therapy, and the support of her mother she was able to overcome her disabilities. Nicknamed "Skeeter" for her infamous speed, Rudolph was the youngest member of the U.S. track and field team and won a bronze medal in the 400-meter relay during the 1956 Olympic Games in Australia. During the 1960 Olympic Games in Italy, Rudolph broke the Olympic record in the 200-meter dash, claiming a gold medal. She was also a part of the U.S. team that established the world record in the 400-meter relay. After Rudolph retired, she went on to teach, coach and run a community center.

Happy 1st Grader

I love the quality of this shirt and design. I have a 1st grader who loves to learn about historical figures. I am so happy to share some with her that look like her. Every Friday she selects a different shirt to wear and share a part of history with her classmates. Thanks you for making such an amazing product.

My daughter LOVES this shirt. Her dad and I are track coaches so she loves the design. I love the quality of the shirt. It holds up well and is so soft. I only wish there were an adult size to match!

Love it!

My 3yo is always so excited to pick this shirt out to wear. She knows about Wilma Rudolph from a few books she has and loves pretending to be her & run really fast while wearing her shirt. Thick, quality material that is so soft. Runs a little big, but I like that it gives her room to grow and will last for a while. This is our 5th shirt from Piccolina because we just love what they're making!

The shirt runs large

I love this shirt! I bought it for my 5 year old who runs a 4t. I bought a 4t and it was way too big and ended up having my 7 year old wear it. My 7 year old wears a small in kids.

Unique shirt

The shirt runs true to size and a great fit. It is unique and my daughter’s virtual school teacher always highlights my daughter and mentions the history when she wears shirts like this. My daughter loves that part!
