Edwards Gets USOC HoF Nod

From UGA Athletics...

Former Georgia Lady Bulldog Teresa Edwards was named to the Class of 2009 for the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame by the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) and Allstate Insurance Company, the organization's presenting sponsor, on Wednesday. This year's class is comprised of five Olympians, one Paralympian, one team, as well as three additional individuals: a coach, veteran and a special contributor.



"For me, it's the highest of highs because I've always looked at the Olympics as being the best that you could possibly get for women's basketball," Edwards said. "For me, it's the most important honor ever. To be in the company of Muhammad Ali and Wilma Rudolph, that's huge. It's kind of like, pinch me, because I still can't believe it."



In addition to Edwards, the star-studded inductee list includes the 1992 Men's Basketball Dream Team, Michael Johnson (athletics), Picabo Street (alpine skiing), Willye White (athletics), Mary T. Meagher (swimming), Sarah Will (Paralympic alpine skiing), longtime Men's Gymnastics coach Abie Grossfeld, skiing veteran Andrea Mead-Lawrence and special contributor Peter Ueberroth. Amazingly, members of this talented group of athletes, teams and coaches have been a part of a combined 21 Olympic and Paralympic Games and brought home a total of 46 medals.



"Her individual contributions to the teams she played on and those teams' successes speak clearly to the the type of competitor that Teresa Edwards has always been," Andy Landers said. "We're proud of those achievements, but I think all Georgians are even prouder of the quality and the class with which she has represented our state and our country. She has truly been a great ambassador for everyone."
