From Voice of America: Senegalese Basketball Legend Helps Motivate Girls
Senegalese basketball legend Anne Marie Dioh is helping to train the next generation of women basketball players in her country. Dioh is making a difference through her after-school program that also encourages young people to stay in school.
Anne Marie Dioh captained Senegal's women's basketball team to two African championships in the early 1990s. The retired shooting guard now helps girls learn the game she loves in a country where women's athletics are overshadowed by men's teams.
