Past Olympic Stars: Where Are They Now?

BlogHer Original Post

Julie Foudy

Julie Foudy was a midfielder for the US women's national soccer team, winning an Olympic gold medal in 1996, silver in 2000, and gold again in 2004. Part of the "golden era" of women's soccer along with Mia Hamm, Brandi Chastain, and Joy Fawcett, her retirement in 2004 marked the end of this run in team history. Since that time, she has served as an on-air analyst for ABC and ESPN. She founded the Julie Foudy Sports Leadership Academy, which helps young girls unlock their potential on the field and off. More than a "soccer camp", it teaches the fundamentals of leadership in sport and life.
