Soccer Legend for All:
“Chicken, brown rice, and veggies is a great healthy option. It’s full of whole grains and protein, and will keep you full for a long time.” – Mia Hamm.
Simple but great wisdom from the best female soccer player in history! With September being National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, we thought it was only fitting to recognize it with a peek back at a soccer legend who serves as a great role model for girls and boys everywhere to eat healthy, live healthy, and be the best. Mia Hamm is a 2-time Olympic gold medalist, FIFA “World Player of the Year” for 2 years in a row, and the youngest soccer player to play in a national team and win the World Cup. In 1999, she set the record of 158 goals, the most international goals scored, more than any male or female soccer player, a title she held until June 2013, when Abby Wambach surpassed her. In 2004, she was named in FIFA’s list of “125 Greatest Living Soccer Players.” In 2007, she was inducted into the National Soccer Hall of Fame. She is truly an inspiration for everyone worldwide!
