Soccer star Amy Rodriguez spills her sporty secrets

Just back from the 2011 Women’s Soccer World Cup in Germany, Amy Rodriguez talks with GL about her love of the game, how she cross-trains and the gear she never leaves home without. This 24-year-old forward has a super impressive resume (ya know, like an Olympic gold) and was majorly inspiring. 

GL: You’re such an amazing athlete. What’s your advice for younger players?
Amy:
Practice makes perfect. I take practice very seriously, and I try to train at my best every day. That way, when I step on the field for a game, I am ready to go. 

GL: What is your fondest soccer-related memory? 
AR:
When my team and I won the 2008 Beijing Olympics. I felt so proud as we stood on the podium with the gold medals around our necks.

GL: Can you describe your off-season workout regiment? 
AR: In the off-season I will do a lot of hiking, biking, and swimming in order to stay in shape. I love to cross-train.
 
GL: What’s your fave part of the sport? 
AR:
I love playing. I look forward to practice every day. I love the feeling of scoring goals and working hard.

GL: What is the one thing you always bring with you on a trip? 
AR:
My PUMA cleats!
