Ronda Rousey

After an incredible run at the 2008 Olympic Games, Ronda Rousey has not only a third place finish to brag about, but a title no other American woman can claim—Judo medalist. Ronda must have the sport in her genes, her mother was a world champion judoka in 1984. But Judo didn't become an official Olympic Games sport until 1992, and no U.S. woman had ever found a place on the medal stand—until now! Ronda's bronze has earned her a spot in U.S. Olympic Games history.
