Medal tally    : 4 gold, 1 bronze
Athletes         : Basketball

The most decorated Olympic Basketball player ever, Teresa Edwards holds the record as both the youngest and the oldest Olympic gold medallist in women’s Basketball.

In an Olympic career spanning five Games, she won a medal at each one of them. Her journey began at Los Angeles 1984 where, aged just 20, she was part of the triumphant USA team.

Seoul 1988 saw Edwards at the heart of another USA triumph and, despite having to settle for a bronze at Barcelona 1992, she won gold again at both Atlanta 1996 and Sydney 2000 – the latter at the age of 36.
