Interview: Carli Lloyd

9 Aug

I’ve been slacking pretty terribly when it comes to posting Olympic blogs. Mainly because I’ve been watching the Olympics.

I’m a huge fan of any competitive sport and all things American, so obviously I go nuts for the Olympics. I’m also a magazine editor (assistant editor, but who’s counting), so I get to work on fun stories all the time.

Last spring, I started a big, long feature on South Jersey’s Olympic athletes. It was without a doubt the most amazing thing I’ve ever had the opportunity to write. One of my highlights was getting to interview US Women’s soccer star midfielder Carli Lloyd, a South Jersey girl that has become a legend on the team for her perfect goals at the last minute. As a huge soccer fan, it was great to get to speak with such a strong woman in one of my favorite sports. Plus, she’s from my turf!

Her interview ran with my other interviews in condensed form, which can be seen here (yes, I’m shamelessly promoting my work and I’m fine with it) but I’ve decided to share my full-length interview on Erica Takes Over. Mainly because it’s too good not to be seen! Carli and team kick off at 2:45 in the gold medal match against their number one rivals, Japan, so make sure you catch it for me since I have to work.
