At age 50, hall of famer Nancy Lieberman is making WNBA headlines for returning to shoot hoops.

Nancy Lieberman won her first Olympic medal at age 18 in 1976. More than 30 years later, she's returned to the game for a 7 day contract with the Detroit Shock. The contract is the result of a short-staffed team following the suspension of five other Shock players.

The whole Nancy Lieberman ordeal is getting a lot of coverage, but she isn't the fisrt female setting a new standard for 'keeping it real' at an older age. Just a week ago, it was Danielle Torres making headlines for being a 41 year old Olympic swimmer. Stats for 50 is the New 30 Trending: Older & Mild
