Biography:

Sports Speaker Carli Lloyd dribbled a soccer ball for the first time at the age of five and she has not looked back since! She is now a 2-time Olympic Medalist and a member of the United States women’s national soccer team (USWNT). In 2015, Carli led the USWNT to their third World Cup title and first in 16 years. Carli came through in the clutch, scoring a record setting hat trick in the first 15 minutes of play in the final match against Japan. She scored 6 goals total in the USWNT’s impressive run to the title. Carli earned the Golden Ball, given to the best player at the FIFA World Cup each year. She is currently endorsed by several major companies including Nike and Visa.

A New Jersey native, Sports Speaker Carli Lloyd attended Rutgers University, where she currently holds the school record for most points with 117. By the end of her time there, Carli would become the first Rutgers athlete to be named to the First-Team All-Big East Conference all four years of her college career. Carli left a definitive stamp on the alma mater before going professional; in 2013 she became a member of the Rutgers Hall of Distinguished Alumni.

Carli scored overtime goals that secured the win for the U.S. in both the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games. She has over fifty career goals, the most for any other player exclusively playing midfield in the women’s national team history, and won the honor of U.S. Soccer Player of the Year following the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Carli is aggressive on the field and a back bone player on the national team, playing alongside fellow notable soccer stars like Hope Solo, Abby Wambach, and Heather O’Reilly. She has racked up numerous other awards ranging from the 2012 Glamour Woman of the Year to making the 2012 Bleacher Report of Top 100 Athletes and the 2012 Short List for FIFA World Player of the Year. The talented soccer standout currently plays for the Houston Dash in the National Women’s Soccer League.

Off the pitch, Sports Speaker Carli Lloyd has volunteered for Habitat for Humanity and hosts an annual soccer summer camp. She has appeared in national publications such as Glamour, Shape, Sports Illustrated, and on the television shows Live! With Kelly and Michael, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and Good Morning America.
