Abby Wambach is a legend – the illustrious and internationally renowned G.O.A.T. of American soccer. The iconic striker and play-maker hailing from Rochester, NY is a two-time Olympic gold medalist, FIFA World Cup champion, and the long-time captain of the U.S. National Team. Leading the charge for the Red, White, and Blue for some 15 years – alongside Mia Hamm, Alex Morgan and everyone in between – Wambach led the USWNT to victory in the 2015 World Cup just before announcing her retirement from the sport of soccer. She is STILL the highest all-time international goal-scorer, with more goals than any other player in the game, male or female.
Abby became an icon not only for her talents but also for her leadership and resilience. In this episode, she discusses her new book, WOLFPACK: How to Come Together, Unleash Our Power, and Change the Game, in which she outlines the eight new rules of leadership.
Abby is interviewed by Tony’s right arm, creative partner, and former ESPN writer, Mary Buckheit, who has covered Abby’s career through the decades.
