An Olympic Dream Come True
Like most serious athletes, playing for gold has been a lifelong dream for Alex. When I spoke with her after last Summer's World Cup match, the London Games were on her mind. "I've watched the Olympics since I was really little and I've always wanted to be an Olympic medalist." Although her performance at the World Cup was stellar, she was not guaranteed a spot on the smaller Olympic team as the roster for the Olympics is limited to 18 players down from the World Cup's 21.
Alex has proved herself to be a true asset for Team USA and has started in every match at the Olympics.
