What It Takes to Win - On and Off the Field | 2x World Cup Winner, Julie Foudy
2x World Cup Winner and 3x Olympic Medalist Julie Foudy discusses the importance of finding joy, championing the future of women's sports, and unlocking the true power of being an extraordinary teammate and parent.
“Success comes when you are a great teammate and work your ass off. People want to be around you and they know that you got their back. You're in the foxhole with them. That's the greatest place they could be, because you're going to take care of them and vice versa.”
Julie Foudy's list of achievements is nothing short of awe-inspiring. As a two-time FIFA World Cup Champion, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, and a member of the National Soccer Hall of Fame, she has left an indelible mark on her field. However, her impact extends far beyond her accolades – Julie is also a dominant and energizing voice in the world of women’s sports. On camera, she lends her talents as an ESPN analyst and commentator; and off, she’s a former President of the Women’s Sports Foundation and a tireless advocate for young female athletes.
Her voice extends to the page, screen and airwaves as well – Julie has her own podcast, Laughter Permitted with Julie Foudy, she’s authored two incredible books, and has produced several documentaries. These days, she can also be seen in the newly-released HBO docuseries, Angel City, about the Los Angeles-based women’s soccer team, Angel City Football Club, of which she’s a proud owner and investor. If you don’t know, this organization has an incredible story that you’ll hear about in this conversation.
Julie is a winner and a champion of other women winning, too – it’s clear that her commitment to women in sport will reverberate for generations to come.
