Sports Speaker Heather O’Reilly knows what it takes to reach the top—she holds three Olympic gold medals as a midfielder on the US women’s national soccer team. Now a current player for the Boston Breakers in the National Women’s Soccer League, Heather’s ride to the Olympics began at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she entered as Soccer America’s top college recruit in the United States. During her time there, Heather was a key player in helping the team win the 2003 and 2006 national championships, which earned her the NCAA’s Today’s Top VIII Award and the ESPN the Magazine’s All American Player of the Year in 2006.

Heather continued to shine on the field after her collegiate career. After her two crucial goals in the 2007 FIFA Women’s World Cup, she was named the 2007 Sportsman of the Year by Sports Illustrated as well as number fifteen on Time magazine’s 100 Olympic Athletes to Watch heading into the Beijing Olympics. It was not long before Heather’s abilities garnered further national attention. In addition to the aforementioned publications, Heather has been highlighted in Shape, Fitness, Teen Vogue, Sports Illustrated, and Boston Magazine. She is endorsed by TRX Training and Adidas. You can catch Heather sporting the #9 on the back of her jersey, the same number worn by former soccer star and Tar Heel Mia Hamm.

Heather truly believes that her success as an athlete is a platform for giving back to younger generations. She is involved in numerous organizations that are committed to changing lives through sports development, including Right to Play, Women’s Sports Foundation, Teammate’s for Kids, AthleteAlly, and America Scores. The Heather O’Reilly Soccer Academy was established in 2013, which conducts soccer training camps and clinics year round throughout the United States. Heather teaches all of the programs for her academy with her qualified team of staff. Between training and coaching, don’t expect Heather to slow down anytime soon—the 2015 Women’s World Cup and the 2016 Olympics are next on her agenda.
