Okla. Gymnast Shannon Miller inducted to Women's Sports Hall of Fame

New York_Olympic gymnast Shannon Miller of Edmond and former UCLA softball coach Sue Enquist are the newest members of the International Women's Sports Hall of Fame.

The two are to be inducted tonight with former Japanese golfer Hisako Higuchi and Algerian track star Hassiba Boulmerka.

The ceremony is part of the grand opening of the Billie Jean King Women's Sports Center in the new Sports Museum of America in New York.  The Women's Sports Foundation has inducted 130 athletes, coaches, and pioneers into the hall of fame since 1980.

The King center in lower Manhattan is the first museum dedicated to women's sports. The interactive center features a timeline of women's sports, audio and video of Mia Hamm, a tennis dress worn by Serena Williams and a wood driver used by Babe Didrikson Zaharias.
