Being the mother of an athlete is a challenging yet rewarding role. So momsTEAM has designated May as Sports Moms Month and is celebrating by asking some of our favorite sports moms to share their wisdom by responding to a series of questions.
So far this month we have heard from a mom of an Olympic athlete, two sports moms who were themselves Olympic athletes (one a gold medalist), an award-winning health and safety reporter for the Chicago Tribune, the mom of two former minor league baseball players, a mom and writer from Texas with a football-crazy son and cheerleader daughter, a Minnesota hockey mom and author, and a top sports nutritionist.
Today we depart a bit from our usual format to give you a video of an interview MomsTEAM founder/CEO, Brooke de Lench, did earlier this week with Shaquille O'Neal's mom, Lucille. It was her second interview of Lucille; the first was two years ago, at the time her book, Walk Like You Have Somewhere to Go, came out.
This time around we talked about Lucille's work with Kimberly Clark and the Boys and Girls Cub, and about being a sports mom to Shaq and his brother and sister.
