Going with the Flo

When I was a little girl I was in love with Florence Chadwick, American swimmer, Olympian and 1st woman to swim the English Channel in both directions. Before she succeeded in this swim though, she'd tried and failed in one of her 1st attempts. I remember getting this news, flinging myself onto my bed and sobbing into my pillow. Fortunately for my delicate psyche she did eventually succeed.

Coop, have you ever heard of Babe Didrikson? Another amazing American athlete. I cut a documentary on her once for ESPN, Inspiring.
