Abby broke her leg in a friendly against Brazil and will miss the Olympics.

Made me think of one of my favorite images from the 2003 World Cup Semi’s against Germany. (Taken with a D1h and held ironically in the USA because of a SARs fear in China if I remember right). Get well soon Abby.

I heard about this tragic news yesterday, years of training and extreme sacrifice only to be ruined by a severe injury. I wish her well.

That's bad news alright, but I like her quote, "Obviously, it's devastating, but above everything else, I'm only one player, and you can never win a championship with just one player," Wambach said in a statement. "I have the utmost confidence in this team bringing home the gold." She will be a strong presence from the bench to be sure.
BTW nice capture George, love seeing your football images
