    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.

  4. 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

  6. That was sad news indeed. She rivals Mia Hamm as an all time favorite in this soccer crazy family! I love watched Abby play!

    Nice shot!
