About

Overview

If music is the universal language, then sports is a close second. Every four years the world comes together for soccer's World Cup as well as the Olympics. We take pride in presenting our best to compete against the best. As a country of immigrants, the United States has always been a standout. In fact, some of our best athletes have come from other countries. Readers learn about the greatness of basketball player Dikembe Mutombo, tennis star Martina Navratilova, baseball great Albert Pujols, weightlifter-turned-movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger and more athletes who have come to this country and excelled at their sport.
