"Female does not equal 'less than,' and women in sport need to

Mia Hamm, Julie Foudy ready to take their places in National Soccer Hall of Fame
SportingNews.com - USA - Mia Hamm got her first glimpse of soccer stardom at age 14 when she planted herself in front of the TV during the 1986 World Cup. She was instantly bedazzled by Diego Maradona.

"I remember there was this drag-and-pull turn he did, and it was just unbelievable," she said. "I videotaped it, kept rewinding it and trying to do it."

Hamm quickly mastered the move, albeit "obviously not as smoothly as he did," and watched in wonder as Maradona led Argentina to the World Cup title. The entire spectacle, she said, turned into an "oh my gosh" realization of how much she

Those who inspired seen as 'real people'
USA Today - USA - They changed us. They inspired us to do better, be braver. They made us think. They gave us hope.

They did what many cannot fathom. One gave up riches as a football star to fight and die for his country. Another won the Tour de France seven consecutive times after chemotherapy and brain surgery. Another emerged not bitter or broken after 27 years in prison for fighting racism, but determined to find peace.

They are among 25 people who moved us during the past quarter-century, as selected by the staff of USA TODAY. Many have been famous and influential, but others were
