It’s been a wild year for U.S. striker Sydney Leroux. After the high of winning big with her teammates in Canada, Leroux underwent ankle surgery soon after in an effort to get back to full health and start preparing for Rio. During a recent training day in Los Angeles, the 25-year-old—who starred in college at UCLA—talked about the challenges she’s faced during recovery, her training routines and motivations, and how music is an essential part of her day. Her wheels in LA: The FIAT 500X. Soundtrack by Coin, Coleman Hell and Phoebe Ryan.
