Dot Richardson

Wow, never thought sports and bones would go together but Olympic Softball Champion and physician Dot Richardson makes that happen! Dot graduated from UCLA in 1983. She was the team's shortstop. She also lead the team in hitting three consecutive years (1980-1983). She graduated from Louisville Medical School. She is an Orthopaedic Surgeon in California. She is 39 years old. Usually she rushes from the hospital to a plane to a softball game and gets dressed in the car between the airport and the field. Her teammates see her walk out onto the field in the second inning. She was the captain of the 1996 Olympic Softball team and helped the USA win the Gold medal in the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia. She won gold again in Sydney in the 2000 Olympics. She is a great softball player and a great physician.
