Two-time Olympic gold medalist Mia Hamm has been announced as the guest speaker for the Courier-Journal Sports Awards that are happening on June 12 and it is expected to be a very motivating speech, touching on topics such as the future of women’s sports. Hamm is also thought to share her own incredible story during this time, which is one that is very compelling and empowering to girls all around the world. The retired superstar has already been pretty vocal about her optimism for the future of women’s athletics, especially when it comes to soccer as Team USA is currently one of the top-ranked in the entire world. It is going to be a very exciting time for all members of the audience, but especially for the young girls watching who hope to follow a similar path as Hamm.
The former professional soccer player was on the United States National Women’s Team from 1987 through 2004 where she played in four World Cup and three Olympic soccer tournaments. In the history of soccer, Hamm was the third most capped female player as they played in 275 international matches. In addition to that, the two-time FIFA World Player of the Year has the national team assists record at 144, and she was inducted into the four historical sports societies: National Soccer Hall of Fame, Alabama Sports Hall of Fame, the World Football Hall of Fame and the Texas Sports Hall of Fame.
Hamm is going to be the guest speaker for this year’s Courier-Journal Sports Awards later on this summer, and the hosting committee couldn’t have picked a better athlete for the job. It will no doubt be a very inspiring and memorable event.
