fatima moreira de melo must be one of the greatest sportstars out there, she won an olympic gold hockey medal and she wins fortunes playing poker. what a woman! she always seems to play with a smile on her face and who can blame her she seems to have it all and not to mention being very beautiful as well.

@ When I was playing field hockey we lost the final to Germany in 2004 at the Olympics and we were devastated. Now I'm playing poker I've been thinking more in terms of percentages and I can deal with loss way better than when I was an active hockey player.
Legendary !!!!!!!!
