Alex Morgan          

U.S. Women's National Soccer Team star; Olympic Gold Medalist

If the tale of American women's soccer begins with a sports-bra victory slide and a 1999 US World Cup Title, then the story's latest chapter lies at the blazing feet of goal scoring machine Alex Morgan.

On the field Alex is graceful and gritty, smooth and strong, darting around defenders to the net one minute and overpowering them the next. A blur on the pitch, she overwhelms with her attacking style, bringing defenses to their knees and fans to their feet. And having scored late goals in World Cup and Olympic matches, she is a pressure performer, thriving when the stage is grandest and all eyes are on the sport she owns.

An Olympic, WPS and NWSL champion, a US Soccer Female Athlete of the Year and a member of the USWNT's All-Time Best XI squad, she is a proven winner at an age when few can say the same.

Glamorous sportswoman, social media phenom, marketing icon-she is all this and more, proof that the female athlete's ability to inspire and excite stretches far beyond the field.

She is Alex Morgan. And 15 years after her sport first washed up on American shores, she is the new face of US Women's Soccer.
