US Women’s Soccer Takes Olympic Gold

The US Women’s Soccer Team avenged their loss to Japan in the finals of the 2011 World Cup, and came home with Olympic Gold!

“I think the fact that we lost the World Cup and the way that we did gives us even more passion and desire to go out and perform tomorrow,” Abby Wambach told reporters before the game.  “The truth is, this is going to be a great day, a great day for soccer, a great day for women’s sports, and something that hopefully we’ll be able to remember for the rest of our lives…”

I had the pleasure of meeting some of the players and photographing their game at Blackbaud Stadium in 2009.
