Dot Richardson

“A true champion works hard and never loses sight of her dreams!” ~ Dot Richardson

Dot Richardson was born on September 22, 1961 in Orlando, FL. She was an American softball player who was a member of the Olympic gold-medal-winning teams in 1996 and 2000.

She was an Olympian before she became an orthopedic surgeon. She has a master’s degree in exercise physiology. She competed as a softball player for the United States National Team during the 1996 Olympic Games, where she hit the home run to win a gold medal during the championship game.

Richardson was inducted into the National Softball Hall of Fame in 2006.

In this unit we will be learning all about sports science, biomechanics and anthropometric characteristics. We will be monitoring our hearts doing different exercise activities. We will also implement March madness into our lessons…haha! Only because I love this time of year and I love basketball.
