Mia Hamm
By Sharon Fabian

1     Sports reports about this player used descriptions like "deadly" and "feared by the opponents." Opposing teams were 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 was Mia Hamm. Mia played soccer, also called football in other countries. Mia, only five feet five inches tall, was a star on the women's U.S. National Team. According to her, "That's always the player I wanted to become, the one the opposition is worried about."
3     Mia Hamm played on the National Soccer 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 won 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.
