Summary
"Lucille 'Ludy' Godbold grew up skinny, tall, and athletic. In her final year on track team at Winthrop College in South Carolina, Ludy gave shot put a try and she made that iron ball sail with her long, skinny arms. When her coach took her to a meet in New York she qualified for the first Women's Olympic Games in 1922. Except she had no money to go. Ludy's college and classmates rallied around her and raised money to send her to compete. She won the gold medal with 1 foot, 2.6 inches to spare."--Publisher's website
