Determined to Win: The Overcoming Spirit of Jean Driscoll
Since 1990, Jean Driscoll has been one of the most inspiring leaders in women's sports. Her tenacity for winning at women's wheelchair racing delivered her into the record books, and her charisma and enthusiasm for life has captured the hearts of audiences worldwide. Best known for her eight victories at the Boston Marathon and her two Olympic silver medals (1992, 1996), Jean has inspired both men and women, athletes and non-athletes, and those with and without physical disabilities. She has been featured on Good Morning America, ABC Nightline, and the Today Show, and twice in USA Today. A documentary highlighting Jean's life story, Against the Wind, has aired on over 400 PBS stations nationwide. Jean is in demand as a motivational speaker and she delights in sharing her "Dream Big, Work Hard" message at conventions, corporations, schools, and with the media.
