On the Field with ... Julie Foudy (Matt Christopher Sports Bio Bookshelf)
"Julie Foudy knows what it's lie to wear gold: She has first place medals from the Women's World Cup 1991, the 1996 Olympic Games, and the Women's World Cup 1999. And she knows what it's like to play a grueling soccer match in front of thousands of screaming fans and to sign autographs for hours after the match is done. But that wasn't always the case, for only in recent years has women's soccer become a widely played and watched event. Julie Foudy's story is not just about great soccer games; it's about how one woman's determination helped change an obscure sport into one with millions of fans."
