Abby Wambach Wins from Within

Back to Blog

All time highest-scoring soccer player—across both male and female players. FIFA’s Player of the Year. Time’s 100 Most Influential People. Two Olympic Golds. Latest goal ever scored. ESPN’s ESPY Award for Best Player of the Year. Athlete of the Year.

The list of awards goes back almost as long as Abby has played soccer. And as she plays her last game today, she shares her thoughts and farewell wishes—not to be remembered, but to be forgotten in light of futures brighter. “The day I’m forgotten is the day we all succeed.”

Martin Leroy joins up with Zia Mohajerjasbi at Society, TBWA\Chiat\Day and Gatorade to celebrate Abby’s profound mark on women, soccer, and soccer fans throughout the world on her last game.

Thanks for all of it Abby.
