As the editor's note says, the basketball players featured should form the core of the 2000 Summer Olympic team. It may be hard to believe that women's basketball has only been an Olympic sport for twenty-five years and was not a big deal. That has certainly changed and women's basketball is now attracting sell-out crowds. Layden offers profiles of the superstars. Among the better-known players are Chamique Holdsclaw, Teresa Edwards (three Olympic gold medals) and Kara Wolters. In addition to the brief biographical sketches, there are great full color photographs of these players and a recap of the stunning performance of the 1996 Olympic team. Part of a series entitled "Women Athletes of the 2000 Olympics" and a great choice for young kids interested in the upcoming games. 2000, Aladdin, Ages 8 up, $5.99.
