The New York Flash's loss was our gain. Traded to the Houston Dash in October 2014, New Jersey gal and regular starter Carli Lloyd soon separated herself from the pack, demonstrating a mental toughness that has led this two-time Olympic gold medalist to glory, including being named FIFA Women's World Cup champion and FIFA Player of the Year in 2015. It was no surprise when she was named to the 2016 Olympic roster; after all, she scored the winning goals in the finals of the 2008 and 2012 Olympics. We all winced when she sprained a ligament back in April, though she was quick to send out a reassuring tweet, "This won't stop me." The midfielder was true to her word, back in the saddle by July and proving that her not-so-secret weapon was working harder than everyone else.
