3 Brooklyn sisters win Sports Kids of the Year
Three track and field champions from Brooklyn were honored as Sports Illustrated's Sports Kid of the Year Monday evening at Barclays Center.
The Sheppard sisters -- Brooke, 11, Rainn, 10, and Tai, 9 -- are no strangers to winning. Back in July, the sisters participated in the Junior Olympics in Houston and brought back some gold with them.
The sisters used to live in a homeless shelter with their mom. The girls say winning this award is a huge honor they worked hard to achieve.
Other athletes honored were LeBron James and Michael Phelps.
