#HowSheDoesIt: Christie Rampone's Longevity Comes From Balance

When Christie Rampone played her first game for the U.S. women's national soccer team in 1997, most of her current teammates were still in elementary school.

Rampone is the only player on the roster who knows what it feels like to win a World Cup. She was a part of the 1999 team that won it all. She's also helped the U.S. win three Olympic gold medals and has played in more than 300 games.

But Rampone says her most important role is being a mother to her two young daughters, Rylie and Reece. "Being a mom puts things into perspective," Rampone says. "As long as they're happy, I'm happy."

Here's how she balances all of that while trying to win another World Cup title.
