Life Off the Track
In 1963, Wilma left the sport of track and field, at the height of her career, to become an elementary school teacher. She married her high school sweetheart, in the same year, and they went on to have 4 children together. Rudolph eventually left the classroom to run a community center and travel around the United States.
