Sydney Rae Leroux moved to the U.S. by herself, leaving her mom behind in British Columbia, at the age of 14 to pursue her soccer dreams in Arizona.
Leroux gets her athletic prowess from both sides of her family: Her mother, Sandi, played third base for the Canadian national softball team. Her father, Ray Chadwick, did a stint as a professional baseball player with the California Angels in 1986.
Playing for the UCLA Bruins, Leroux was named First team All-American, Soccer America's MVP First Team and was a semi-finalist for the Hermann Trophy to boot.
Leroux won an Olympic gold medal in 2012 in London as the youngest member of the U.S. team.
