U.S. Women’s National Team coach Pia Sundhage named her 18-woman roster for the Olympic tournament in Beijing (ASN, June 23, 2009).

Nine players on the roster were members of the U.S. team that won the gold medal four years ago in Athens, Greece, including team co-captains Christie Rampone and Kate Markgraf. Abby Wambach, who had hoped to reach 100 goals in the Olympics, was on Sundhage’s original list but would be injured in the friendly win over Brazil and forced to miss the tournament. The U.S. went on to win Olympic gold.
