Mia HammMia Hamm

Long after her retirement, Mia Hamm is still the face of women’s soccer not just in American but around the world and quite possible the most recognizable American soccer player, regardless of gender. Hamm burst onto the scene as she led the North Carolina Tar Heels to four-straight National Champions in college, but continued her great success as the star of the US women’s national team. For team USA, Hamm was the centerpiece of two Olympic Gold Medal winning teams and a World Cup winning team. Her excellent all-around game, pace, scoring ability and grace on the field earned her the FIFA Women’s Player of the Year award in 2001 and 2002, the first two years the award was given out. Her 158 international goals was the most in US history until Abby Wambach broke the record in 2013. Hamm’s record stood nearly a decade.
