Carli Lloyd is a U.S. midfielder whose pregame warm-up involves mentally preparing, hydrating, and stretching.  Her training warm-up involves 100% focus before and during practice, getting a good warm-up in and stretching a lot. Carli Lloyd went from forgettable to immortal, hitting a pile driver in the 96th minute that settled into the Brazilian net, and gave the Americans a 1-0 victory and a gold medal that at times seemed beyond the realm of possibility.

Congratulations to the U.S. Female Soccer Team!!!!
