Mia Hamm

April 24, 2008

Mia Hamm has been the face for U.S. women’s soccer for a very long time. Hamm’s prestigious soccer career began while playing at the University of North Carolina. It was even said that some of her teammates called her “Jordan” because his airness had also been a star athlete at UNC. Hamm then moved on to help the U.S. National team win the World Cup in 1991 and 1999, and third place finishes in 1995 and 2003.

Like many other female athletes before her, Hamm encouraged girls to get out there and play sports. She wanted to girls to know they could be great athletes as well and to know that they might even be able to compete with the guys.
