At the 1960 Olympics in Rome, Wilma Rudolph stunned the world by becoming the 1st woman to win 3 consecutive gold medals in Track & Field. Amazingly, Wilma (Shirley Jo Finney) was afflicted by polio, a disease she conquered on her way to becoming one of America's greatest athletes. The story begins with Wilma's childhood in rural Tennessee, when her parents first learn she had contracted this horrendous disease. Her mother (Cicely Tyson) does everything in her power to bolster Wilma's self confidence and help her triumph over the handicap. Her ceaseless determination pays off as Wilma develops her strength, speed and agility. But her greatest triumph comes at the 1960 Olympics.
