In case you missed it (I did), five-time Olympian Teresa Edwards is one of the nominees for the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame Class of 2009. From now until June 16, fans can cast their votes for the class Online at www.teamusa.org/halloffame.
The inducted class will include five individuals, one team and one Paralympian, as well as three additional individuals: a coach, veteran and special contributor. The inductees will be revealed in early July and will be honored at a black-tie induction ceremony on August 12 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
Edwards (pictured right by USA Basketball) was part of the historic 1996 gold-medal winning team that played before record crowds and helped launch two pro women’s leagues — the defunct ABL and WNBA. You can read more about the other nominees and Edwards here.
