One can be truly triumphant even in the face of defeat. Just ask tennis superstar Serena Williams, 36, who claimed the runners-up trophy at Wimbledon last month, less than a year after giving birth and simultaneously making herself a hero to working mums everywhere.
“It was such an amazing tournament for me,” Williams told an enthralled crowd following the match. “I was really happy to get this far. It’s obviously disappointing, but I can’t be disappointed because there’s so much to look forward to. To all the mums out there I was playing for you today, and I tried.”
