" A " Time - A ZSport Challenge

Another great challenge series by @serialfiller is one that all sports fans will love. In this challenge, you get to talk about your favorite sports figure or team on and off the field.

I love the sports of football and basketball. Many of my favorite athletes I choose to follow are those who exhibit extraordinary character on and off the field.

One such athlete is Janeth dos santos Arcain. She was born in 1969 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Her professional career included the World Championship for Women in 1994 and two medals in the Olympic Games becoming the highest-scoring female player over of the Olympics with 535 points.1

The reason I know her well is that she was one of the original players selected in the Women's National Basketball Association (the "WNBA") in its inaugural season in 1997. She was selected 13th overall by the Houston Comets. Her position was Guard. I attended many of her games. She was part of the starting lineup given the name "Van's Angels" referring their head coach.

She was a major factor in the Comets dominating the women's basketball sport, winning four consecutive championships beginning the inaugural season to 2000. Here are her stats.

She won several awards, and was an WNBA All-Star in 2001 playing her best season averaging 18.5 points per game.1

But what I loved about her the most was her all-star performance off the court. The Janeth Arcain Institute is her legacy. The institute is located in Sao Paulo. Children 7 through 17 are able to attend her HOOPS FOR HOPE PROGRAM free of charge. I feel that programs that are made available for youths who otherwise wouldn't have opportunities for personal, social, or athletic development, can empower them for life. We need more individuals in a position to do so such as Janeth did to step up and create or become involved with such programs.

I followed her career until her retirement in 2007.

In July, 2007, Janeth said farewell to the basketball world with her silver medal in Rio in the Pan American Games.

In 2015, Janeth was inducted into the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame. 2

In 2019, she was inducted into the FIBA Hall of Fame. A legend in her own right.

Thanks for stopping by and viewing my selection today.

I invite @velinov86 to participate in this A-Z Sport Challenge.

Sports has so many stories lovely share and i love that its a woman

Thanks. And yes, I loved when women got a chance to play professional basketball. It opened up a lot of opportunities for them when previously they had nowhere to go after playing in college in the U.S. They had to go out of the country. Still, the disparities in earnings and endorsement contracts salaries existed.

Lovely write-up on Janeth dos santos Arcain. I played basketball in high school and always enjoyed the sport.

That is great you played high school basketball. Were you the slam-dump champ?

Haha @justclickindiva. I wasn’t too bad at it but no trophies.
