Five-time Olympian and the most decorated Olympic basketball player on the planet with four gold medals and one bronze, Teresa Edwards received the BoostMobile Pioneer Award at the WNBA Inspiring Women Luncheon.

Each year, the WNBA Inspiring Women national luncheon celebrates individuals who show the world what is possible. As Title IX turns 40 and as American women made headlines at this summer’s Olympic Games, a host of female Olympians from multiple sports will be in attendance to receive their acknowledgement including Betsey Armstrong (Water Polo), Danielle Scott-Arruda (Indoor Volleyball), Kayla Harrison (Judo), Taylor Ritzel (Rowing), and Lauren Tamayo (Cycling). Reigning WNBA MVP Tamika Catchings will represent the USA Basketball Women’s National Team in accepting a special recognition for receiving their fifth straight gold medal.

Four-time USA Basketball Female Athlete of the Year Teresa Edwards first put on a USA Basketball uniform at the age of 17 at the 1981 U.S. Olympic Festival and was a fixture on USA Basketball teams for nearly two decades. In addition to helping her USA teams to gold in 1984, 1988, 1996 and 2000, Edwards was on the 1992 U.S. Olympic Team that brought home the bronze medal. Through the years, Edwards has been a member of 22 different USA Basketball teams. Of a possible 18 medals, she has won 14 gold, one silver and three bronze medals, and USA Basketball teams with her on the roster have compiled an overall record of 205-14 for a 93.6 winning percentage.

A critical component in the USA’s remarkable 46 game win streak in major international competitions between 1983 and 1991, Edwards persevered through a string of disappointing bronze medal finishes at the 1991 Pan American Games, 1992 Olympics and 1994 World Championship to help return the U.S. to the gold medal platform at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta and 2000 Games in Sydney. Edwards in 1984 became the youngest Olympic women’s basketball gold medalist and in Sydney she became the oldest player to win an Olympic gold medal in women’s basketball.

Edwards was inducted into the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame in 2009, the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in 2010 and this August will be inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame. She is a resident of Atlanta, Ga., and currently an assistant coach and director of player personnel with the WNBA’s Tulsa Shock.
