Alex Morgan, pictured above, was responsible for the decisive goal today that sent the US women’s soccer team cheering over a much-earned victory against Canada. 23-year-old Morgan was already a star player in the last World Cup, and now, like a true second chance, the US will play Japan on Thursday, and will probably take home the gold this time.
Other things you may have missed:
- Michael Phelps’ secret girlfriend is not-so-secret anymore: 25-year-old Megan Rossee is a model who just loves to tweet at and about her champion. The general public has yet to decide if this is kind of cute or kind of annoying.
- US rower Henrik Rummel gave an interview to Gawker and said that he did NOT have a boner in that photo where he wins a bronze medal. Just so you, you know, know, or whatever. He seems to have a great sense of humor about the entire thing!
