The authoritative People magazine has included American tennis player Serena Williams and skier Lindsey Vonn to the list of womenwho changed the world.
Williams received recognition for his fighting spirit on the court and beyond. In particular, from her early childhood, she listened to the insults of racism, but it only made her stronger.
In early November it became known Venus and her sister Serena in his native California city of Compton will open a centre for victims of violence.
Olympic champion Lindsey Vonn this year created a Fund for girls, helping them to realize themselves in the sport.
When Lindsay was 9, she was able to communicate and get the autograph of the legendary skier, Picabo Street. Those two minutes changed the lives of Vaughn and now she intends to give the opportunity to experience something similar to a new generation of future athletes.
Рeople magazine annually compiles a list of women who most clearly expressed itself in charitable and social events. The list of 2016 also includes actress Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman and Maisie Williams, Oprah Winfrey, and the U.S. President’s wife Michelle Obama.
