When it comes to soccer and the FIFA World Cup, many people associate the two with men and not women. Even though acknowledgement of women in this sport is still somewhat new, these women have proven to be worth their salt. One such example is Olympic gold-medalist and FIFA World Cup champion, Alex Morgan. This is her story.
Alex Morgan was born on July 2nd, 1989 in San Dimas, California. From a young age she had a passion for all sports, but her passion for soccer outweighed everything else.
At just 8 years old, she knew what she wanted to grow up to be and that was a professional soccer player. Many kids have dreams that never materialize, but for Alex Morgan she had her eyes set on greatness and nothing was going to stop her.
