 To posthumously award a congressional gold medal to Wilma G. Rudolph.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. FINDINGS.

    Congress finds that--
            (1) Wilma G. Rudolph of Clarksville, Tennessee, the 20th of 
        22 children, overcame a series of childhood diseases, including 
        scarlet fever, double pneumonia, and polio, to become an 
        athletic pioneer and champion in the State of Tennessee, the 
        United States, and the world, first as an outstanding 
        basketball player and track athlete in Tennessee, then as a 3-
        time gold medal winner in the 1960 Olympics in Rome, and 
        finally as a pioneer for racial equality, goodwill, and 
        justice;
            (2) Wilma G. Rudolph's winning of 3 gold medals in the 1960 
        Olympics served as an inspiration to athletes of all sports, 
        all races, and both genders;
            (3) Wilma G. Rudolph's ability to inspire endured after her 
        performance in the 1960 Olympics, as demonstrated by--
                    (A) her receipt in 1987 of the National Collegiate 
                Athletic Association's Silver Anniversary Award, the 
                first time a woman ever received the award;
                    (B) her receipt of the 1989 Jackie Robinson Image 
                Award of the National Association for the Advancement 
                of Colored People (NAACP);

                Hall of Fame in 1973;
                    (D) her receipt of the 1985 Humanitarian of the 
                Year Award of the Special Olympics; and
                    (E) her receipt in 1993 of the National Sports 
                Award, the only time a woman has received the award;
            (4) Wilma G. Rudolph, a graduate of Tennessee State 
        University, a successful businessperson, a mother, an athlete, 
        a coach, and a teacher, who passed away on November 12, 1994, 
        will forever remain an inspiration to all able-bodied and 
        physically-challenged individuals in overcoming odds;
            (5) Wilma G. Rudolph blazed a trail that helped all people 
        understand the contributions of women to the world of 
        athletics;
            (6) the legacy of Wilma C. Rudolph continues to serve as a 
        particular inspiration to women; and
            (7) Wilma G Rudolph's life truly embodied the American 
        values of hard work, determination, and love of humanity.
