Three track athletes all hailing from the same family were propelled into the national spotlight in 2016 with their first-time wins at the Junior Olympics. But the Shepperd sisters were more than just prodigies – they were a near-homeless family who managed to move from the shelters into their own home with the help of the fame from their Junior Olympics win. A new Netflix documentary, Sisters on Track, chronicles how Tai, Rainn, and Brooke Shepperd beat the odds to become nationally famous athletes. Watch the Sisters on Track trailer below.
