Kokmeijer was seriously injured by opponent Rachid Bouaouzan playing for Sparta Rotterdam on 17 December 2004. Kokmeijer’s leg was broken badly and he was forced to retire from professional football.
same type of foul, same leg in full swing, just two inches lower
A Tribute to Heather Mitts - 2000
Although Mitts wasn’t able to crack the Olympic Squad, she was able to earn some minutes on the national team, playing here in a 3-2 win over Australia in January of that year. The defender was also able to sign with a club team after completing her time with the Gators, representing the Tampa Bay Extreme that year.

Amy LePeilbet tweets, inspired girls soccer team responds with sectional title.
At 12:48 p.m., former Prairie Ridge girls soccer player and U.S. Olympic Gold Medalist Amy LePeilbet sent out a good luck tweet to her former team before the Wolves Class 2A Freeport Sectional final match against Freeport.
When word about the tweet got around to the team, the players became giddy and felt honored that an accomplished athlete who has been in the same position would be thinking of them before their biggest moment of the season.
“I think that gave everyone a boost of excitement and everyone was ready to go and ready to win after that,” Wolves goalkeeper Whitney Whitehouse said.
The excitement and readiness carried over onto the field as the Wolves (17-2-1) defeated Freeport, 2-1, for their first sectional championship since 2005. (x)
(remember when LeP wouldn’t join twitter saying “I don’t have anything going on that will grab the attention of anybody.”?? Lolz.)
Just saw Wolfsburg upset over Lyon come in at #9 on the Fox Soccer top 10 highlights of the week.
the queen is back and ready to play!!!
