Who’s sitting next to you?

pro soccer player (and 2008 Olympic gold medalist)

WHY I’M FLYING I’m heading to Los Angeles with the 
U.S. Women’s national 
team for a two-week training camp. We’re preparing for the 2011 World Cup in Germany. I’m on a plane seven or eight times a month.

I NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT My eye mask and neck pillow, and I wear Skins compression tights under my pants, which help keep my legs from swelling. Also, I stay connected with my laptop and BlackBerry, and I always stop for a huge bottle of water before boarding. You’ve got to 
stay hydrated.

IF I WEREN’T A SOCCER PLAYER I’d love to be a pilot. Flying’s a part of my life now, and I think it’s really cool. It’s a dream of mine to be in a cockpit.
