As revealed today on The View by Whoopi Goldberg and, simultaneously, via the Times Square Jumbotron, Tai, Rainn and Brooke Sheppard have won Sports Illustrated Kids’ 10th annual SportsKid of the Year honors. From the announcement:

The Sheppard sisters (aged 9, 10 and 11) began living in a homeless shelter with their mother after having been evicted from their apartment in September 2015. They began their track and field careers when a babysitter signed them up for a meet in January 2015 as a fun, free activity.
