Pia Sundhage! Formerly a Swedish professional soccer player herself, she has also coached the US Women's National soccer team for 5 years. She is going back to coach the Swedish national team after a highly successful stint, going 91-6-10 in her time on the bench. Besides two Olympic gold medals, she also led the Americans to their first World Cup final in 12 years. We will miss her renditions of "You Are My Sunshine" as well. Good luck in Sweden, Pia! As seen at http://grrrlcamp.org/athletes/
Pia, you brought this team together again when it was in disarray. Thank you for your time and good luck in Sweden.
