Summary

An Olympic gold medal in 1996 is just one of the many highlights of Julie Foudy's soccer career. In 1991, she helped the U.S. national team win the first women's World Cup. She also led her college team, the Stanford Cardinal, to the NCAA playoffs during each of her four years there, and graduated from Stanford as the all-time leader in goals and assists. Playing soccer since the first grade, Julie's commitment to the sport goes even deeper than her determination and dedication to her team. She was the first American and first woman to receive the Fair Play Award for her work to end child labor in soccer ball factories. Read this exciting biography to learn more about this groundbreaking star of women's soccer.
