Description

Introduces readers to inspiring immigrants whose sports contributions made our country great. From Nigeria's Hakeem Olajuwon who made his 7 foot mark playing basketball for the Houston Rockets, to Panama's Mariano (Mo) Rivera who became baseball's greatest closer, to Czechoslovakia's Martina Navratilova who was one of the world's top tennis players, each profile is presented in a clear, historical context with an emphasis on their legacies.
