The 5 feet 11 inches tall athlete also won the Bob Allen Women's Player of the Year alongside the coveted Patty Kazmaier Award in 1999.

Aj Mleczko Married Life
Mleczko is living a cheerful marital life with Jason in Concord, Massachusetts. The flamboyant couple has spent nearly 23 years together.
They met for the first time in Nantucket when Jason was on vacation. AJ introduced him to the media through Baltimore Sun during the celebrations of the U.S. women's team winning the gold medal in 1998.
In a February 2002 interview with Hartford Courant, the Olympiad revealed that the two had not been together for many months as she was traveling and practicing for the 2022 Olympics.
Meanwhile, her hubby was equally busy with his work as a budding entrepreneur. Hence, when one would reach home, the other would be far from home due to work.
The duo has found ways to be together in a glorious matrimonial relationship all these years despite their busy schedules and work pressures.
They enjoy many outdoor activities, including boating, flying planes, going out on the beach, and doing adrenaline activities. Jason and Mleczko climbed Mt. Washington in September 2020, though the former ruled it as a bad idea later.
