Mia Hamm named top female athlete of past 40 years


Mia Hamm's career was indeed a gift -- to her sport, to her country and to her causes. She helped put women's soccer on the map, and became the first global icon in women's team sports. She was talented. She was beautiful. But mostly, she won. A lot. Part of the first golden generation of U.S. players, Hamm appeared in the first four Women's World Cups, winning two of them.
