Mia Hamm
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     Sports reports about this player use words like " deadly" and "feared by the opponents." Opposing teams have been known to mark this player with two or even three defenders.
 
2     They weren't talking about some big NFL quarterback or receiver. This fearsome offensive player is Mia Hamm. Mia is thin, five-feet five-inches tall, and a star on the women's U.S. National Team. Mia plays soccer, also called football. According to her, "That's always the player I wanted to become, the one the opposition is worried about."
 
3     Mia Hamm has played on the National Team for 17 years. She was part of the team in the 1996 Olympics, the year that women's soccer became famous in the United States. Before that, women's soccer players were not well known. They did not have lots of fans in attendance at their games. That changed in 1996. Mia's team played and won all the way to the gold medal that year in Atlanta. Mia herself scored one goal and set up both goals in the championship match. The game was attended by 80,000 fans, the largest crowd ever for a women's sports event.
