Description
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 revolutioned the sport of swimming for women, a movie star who invented water ballet, and a fashion revolutionary who modernized the swimsuit. Wow, thanks, Annette!
