US Olympic Soccer Gold Medalist
Abby Wambach Biography
Abby Wambach was born June 2, 1980 in Rochester, New York and is an Olympic medalist and professional soccer player. She has been a regular on the US Women's National Team since 2003.
Wambach is a 1998 graduate of Our Lady of Mercy High School where she lettered in soccer and basketball. She was named the NSCAA Player of the Year and the Umbro Player of the Year in her senior year.
Wambach went on to achieve success playing for the University of Florida Gators. Wambach continued to earn accolades in college, taking the NSCAA first team all-American, NCAA National Championship, and freshman All-American Awards (all in 1999). She is also the University of Florida's all-time leading scorer.
Wambach was the second overall draft pick in the WUSA in 2002. She went on to play for the Washington Freedom rather than completing her degree at Florida. Her contributions while in Washington, playing alongside greats like Mia Hamm, helped to propel the Freedom to a victory in Founders Cup III (the WUSA championship match), where Wambach was the game MVP. Wambach was also the recipient of a number of other soccer-related awards during her WUSA career.
Wambach's impressive WUSA credentials earned her a spot in the US Women's National Team's (US WNT) training camp. Initially thought to be a bubble player, she increased her fitness, and her talents sealed her position with the 2003 World Cup team. Although the US Women did not win the 2003 World Cup (having taken home a bronze), she scored a historic goal against arch-rival Norway, helping the US team to a position in the semifinals.
