Wilma Rudolph quote: “Winning is great…


“Winning is great, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose…If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday.”

– Wilma Rudolph

Black-and-white photograph of Wilma Rudolph holding an umbrella, standing in profile. She is wearing a dark blazer with a badge that reads 'USA' over a light-colored shirt with a dark tie. She appears to be smiling slightly and looking off to the side, with a candid expression, holding a booklet in her other hand. There are indistinct figures and what appears to be an airplane in the blurred background, suggesting a busy setting.
