Jorge Iber, co-author of Latinos in U.S. Sport: A History of Isolation, Cultural Identity, and Acceptance, provides commentary for CNN in association with Soledad O’Brien’s report, "Latino in America: In Her Corner." This documentary illustrates the current and historical challenges a Latina boxer, Marlen Esparza, faces as she fights for a place in the 2012 Olympic games.

Iber describes the influence of athletes like Marlen Esparza as Latinas fight for acceptance in historically nontraditional sports. Read the complete commentary.
