ESPN is commemorating women’s history month and in March it will devote an array of its assets to tell tale of the inspirational side of exceptional women in the world of sports, culminating with a one-hour special, Her Story, hosted by SportsCenter host Hannah Storm.
The Her Story special will highlight up-and-coming athletes, as well as the issues they face, notably teenage surfing phenom Bethany Hamilton, who returned to her sport after a shark attack took her left arm in 2003. Bethany Hamilton’s extraordinary comeback after being attacked by a shark is an inspiration to me. I mean the day after she got attacked she was quoted as saying, “I will surf again.” Then 8 months later with a top showing in the world (national) surfing association, she was given the ESPY award for “Best Comeback Athlete” and the girl continues to rip it!
Watch it tonight on ESPN at 8pm EST and 5pm PST.
