Google Doodle celebrates 77th birth anniversary of the late Kitty O’Neil
On March 24, 2023, Google celebrated the 77th birth anniversary of the late Kitty O’Neil, a stuntwoman, race car driver, and actress, with a Google Doodle. The Doodle features an animated illustration of O’Neil racing down a desert highway in a car, with the Google logo displayed in the background.
The Doodle celebrates O’Neil’s numerous achievements, particularly her accomplishments in the field of speed racing. O’Neil set multiple land-speed records throughout her career and became the fastest woman in the world in 1976 when she reached a top speed of 512 mph in a rocket-powered car.
Aside from her work in motorsports, O’Neil was also a renowned stuntwoman who worked on a number of Hollywood movies and TV shows. She worked as a stunt double for actresses such as Lynda Carter and Lindsay Wagner and coordinated stunts for films like “Airport 1975” and “The Blues Brothers.”
Furthermore, O’Neil was an inspiration to many people, particularly those with disabilities. She was deaf since she was five months old and was told by doctors that she would never be able to speak or communicate properly. However, she went on to achieve great things and proved that anything is possible with hard work and determination.
Google Doodle’s celebration of Kitty O’Neil’s 77th birth anniversary is a fitting tribute to a remarkable woman who achieved so much in her lifetime. It serves as a reminder of her inspiring legacy and the important contributions she made to the fields of entertainment and motorsports.
