Ghana-born Freddy Adu is probably America's most famous green card lottery beneficiary. He immigrated with his family when he was eight. In just six years, he would become an international sensation when at the age of 14 years and seven months he was the youngest person since 1887 to sign a major league professional contract.

Freddy played three seasons for Major League Soccer's DC United and then a season for Real Salt Lake before playing the last two seasons in Europe. In 2003, Freddy became a US citizen, though he makes his Olympic debut this year. He played very well in the US Olympic qualifying games and if America earns a medal this year, Adu will likely play an important role.
