Olympic Gold Medalist Christie Pierce Rampone.
We’re joined on the Starline by the one of the most legendary players in International Soccer history. She has 3 Olympic gold medals, 1 Silver and it the 8th woman in US history to have 2 World Cup titles in her resume. Welcome Christie Pierce Rampone.
Let’s go Beyond the Mic, in your book “Be All In: Raising Kids for Success in Sports and Life” you start with the concept that it is just a game. Everyone knows that parent who runs their kid into the ground because they didn’t do better.
Why was this book important for you to write and what was the inspiration for this book?
“Your emotions are for the locker room,” talk about the importance of body language and watching it for coaches.
Your book not only tackles the path children need to take for sports to be healthy but the importance of leadership, actual leadership by their parents not just yelling at them
Embracing a Win without Hurting Others:
You say in the book “I became so aware of other people’s emotions that I saw my victories as someone else’s losses” how we teach a moment like a win and learn to embrace it without feeling like you’ve trampled on someone else?
How have you dealt with quarantine to make yourself better during this time?
My niece is heading to St Francis University to play women’s soccer. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the lasting effects on Women’s soccer with COVID-19 Delay?
When do you think we will see the US Women’s National team play on the pitch next? Will we have to wait for the Olympics in 2021?
