What do Mo’ne Davis, Mia Hamm and Lauren Hill have in common?
In addition to features in this blog (if you missed it, here’s Mo’ne with our president and Yale hockey alumna, Lisa Strasman, Laura Chmiel on Mia Hamm and Dick’s Sporting Goods and Lauren headlining one of our recent newsletters–signing up to stay current on recruiting news is really easy), all three are part of ESPNW’s Impact 25, which celebrates women and what women can accomplish in sports. As Allison Glock writes, the feature recognizes athletes like Mo’ne Davis, who
intoxicated a nation and restored our hope in what sports can offer not just girls but everyone. She was the child we all wished we could grow up to be.
And it’s not just athletes and coaches whom ESPNW recognized:
In our espnW Impact 25, we honor women such as Brittney Griner, Ronda Rousey, Serena Williams, Laurel Richie, Amy Purdy, Michelle Wie and others who excelled in their sports, who inspired with their personal choices, whose examples and leadership reminded all who cared to watch that there are times when a woman might in fact be the best man for the job.
We’ll be sharing more of our favorite moments from Impact 25, along with the best of your tweets, Instas, Verified ID pics and more to celebrate what athletes around the world have accomplished in 2014.
