Pamela and JaVale McGee become the first mom-and-son gold medal duo in Olympics history

Hall-of-Famer and USC Trojans legend, Pamela McGee, and her son JaVale McGee are the first mom and son to win gold medals in Olympic history.

Pamela beat South Korea 85-55 to win gold at the 1984 Olympics, and now, 37 years later, JaVale has secured his first gold medal at the 2020 Tokyo Games by helping Team USA defeat France, 87-82.

Pamela is also the only former WNBA player to have children who played in both the NBA and WNBA. JaVale has played in the NBA for more than a decade, while younger sister Imani McGee-Stafford played in the WNBA from 2016-2019. The legacy continues for the McGee family in the Olympics.
