The Beauty of Sport, Part Two: Soccer player Angela Hucles

The United States's men's soccer team almost never disappoints in disappointing.  Fortunately, we have a stellar women's soccer team, and Angela Hucles was part of that success in the seven years she was on the team.

Angela Hucles played the midfield position on the team. During her stint, from 2002 to 2009, the team won two World Cups (2003 and 2007) and two Olympic gold medals (2004 and 2008). Angela Hucles was a substitute for an injured Abby Wambach at the Beijing Olympics in 2008, but she proved to be more than just a reliever. She scored four goals, including two against Japan in the semifinals, helping the American women win a gold medal.
