 Abby Wambach Biography

Abby Wambach, is a two-time Olympic gold medalist and activist for pay equity and LGBTQ rights.

Wambach currently holds one of the best goals per game ratio in United States history with over 120 goals scored in international competition. At 5'11', she is considered one of the world's best aerial players in the world.

After being named to the U.S. Women's National Team for the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece, her header in extra time against Brazil gave the U.S. team a 2-1 victory and the gold medal. She finished the year with 31 goals and 13 assists and fourth in the voting for the FIFA Women's World Player of the Year.

In the 2007 Women's World Cup, Wambach scored six goals in six matches. In the quarterfinal match against England, she became the twentieth American woman, and thirtieth American soccer player overall, to reach the 100 cap plateau. Wambach was named to the 2008 U.S. Olympic Women's Soccer Team, but in the final match before the Olympics on July 16, she broke her left leg in a collision, which prevented her from playing in the Beijing Olympics. At the London Games in 2012, she scored five goals in six games to help secure her second gold medal.

As of September 2012, Wambach has 146 goals in 191 international matches. She currently stands second only behind Mia Hamm on USA's all-time scoring list. She reached 100 goals in fewer games than any of the four other American players who had previously reached 100 goals: (Mia Hamm, Kristine Lilly, Michelle Akers and Tiffeny Milbrett). Wambach is a five-time winner of the U.S. Soccer Federation's U.S. Soccer Athlete of the Year award (2003, 2004, 2007, 2010, 2011) and was named Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year for 2011.
