Idolized by young soccer players across the globe, Powder Springs resident Michelle Akers is the most decorated woman in soccer history. With 153 caps (appearances in international games), she played for the U.S. Women’s National Team (USWNT) for 15 years before retiring in 2001. During that time, she won two World Cups and took Olympic Gold. Her aggressive and physical style of play at center mid and forward have garnered her numerous accolades, including four-time All American at University of Central Florida, ESPN Athlete of the Year, a FIFA Golden Boot and FIFA Player of the Century. Not surprisingly, her meteoric success on the pitch also netted her an induction into the National Soccer Hall of Fame.
