Rochester's soccer star Abby Wambach breaks leg

Pittsford native and U.S. soccer star Abby Wambach is scheduled to have surgery at 2 p.m. today to repair two fractures in her left leg, suffered Wednesday night during a game in San Diego, according to her brother, Matt Wambach.

Abby’s mother, Judy, flew out from Rochester early this morning to be with her daughter, who now will miss next month’s Olympic Games in China. Doctors expect to insert a titanium rod into her leg during today's surgery...

Ms. Wambach is a good roll model. I hope that she recovers quickly. My thoughts are with her.

Oh no- the severity didn't hit me until I read the part aboutmissing the Olympics- I hope she can bounce back and make another go at it.

Hi Michelle Gartner,

I do too! Her mother said that Abby is being very brave, and is the one who is helping the rest of the family in this difficult time. She has also given back to the community and is a good roll mode. I hope she gets another chance.

Hi meleah rebeccah,

She is being very brave about it. On TV they show her waving at the camera when it first happened. She said that she did that to cheer her team on.
