Golden Girl

Ending a fifteen year absence of professional women’s basketball in the United States, Leslie and eleven of the top women players formed the 1995-1996 National Team. They dominated on their international training tour and took the gold in the ‘96 Olympics, earning Leslie her first trip to the games and first gold medal.
