International Soccer Legend
Soccer icon Mia Hamm spent 17 years on the field, making two Olympic appearances, winning two World Championships and earning a reputation as one of the greatest athletes in the history of sport.
Hamm's success began at age 15 as the youngest woman to play for the U.S. National Team. Hamm spent four years at the University of North Carolina, leading the Tar Heels to four consecutive NCAA Championships. On the national level, she went on to shatter records for the number of international goals and assists. She starred in female sports biggest and most watched games--the Olympic gold medal match in 1996 and the Women's World Cup in 1999. Her success made her one of the most recognized and marketable female athletes of her era.
Throughout her career, she earned the ESPY for Female Athlete of the Year twice and was named the FIFA Women Player of the Year in 2001 and 2002.
Though she retired over ten years ago, Hamm remains an inspiration for young girls looking to rise to the pinnacle of the sporting world. She is the founder of the Mia Hamm Foundation, dedicated to helping families in need of marrow or cord blood transplants and the development of more opportunities for young women in sports.
Hamm currently resides in southern California with her husband, former professional baseball player Nomar Garciaparra, and their three children.
