Alabama born Mia Hamm was in her 20s when she shot to stardom after becoming the face of U.S.A.’s Women’s soccer team as a midfielder and forward in both the FIFA Women’s World Cup and the Summer Olympics.
Mia Hamm played alongside an incredible roster on American athletes referred to as the Fab Fave — including Julie Foudy as the big-blocking midfielder, Joy Fawcett as the daring defender, Kristine Lilly as the fast-moving forward and of course, Brandi Chastain as the iconic shirt stripping game-winner.
Hamm’s last match as a U.S.A. representative was at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Greece.
