A fun, feel-good, "underdog" story about a little-known female athlete whose derring-do transformed girls’ sports.
Are you brave enough to make a wave? If you love sports and people who aren’t afraid to swim against the tide, Annette Kellerman and her freestyle approach to life will make your heart swell.
As a child growing up in Australia, Annette Kellerman was a frail ugly duckling who dreamed of becoming a graceful ballerina. With pluck and courage, she confronted a crippling illness — and countless naysayers —to become an internationally known record-setting athlete who revolutionized the sport of swimming for women, a movie star who invented water ballet, and a fashion revolutionary who modernized the swimsuit.
Wow, thanks, Annette!
