USMNT’s Jay DeMerit gets DeMarried

A big congratulations goes out to Jay DeMerit for marrying former Olympic gold medalist Ashleigh McIvor this weekend!

The former USA regular and Vancouver Whitecaps captain tied the knot with McIvor Sunday in Whistler, B.C. — not far from where McIvor won the first ever gold medal in women’s ski cross for Canada in the 2010 Olympics.

DeMerit recorded the event with the instagram picture above, which was captioned with the phenomenal #DeMarried hashtag.

After rupturing his Achilles tendon on opening day of the MLS season, DeMerit is on the verge of making his comeback, just in time for the Whitecaps’ playoff push. Hopefully, though, he’s still just a couple days away so that he can enjoy a short honeymoon!

Abby Wambach breaks Mia Hamm’s all-time international scoring record

History!

Abby Wambach is now the all-time leading goal scorer in not only women’s, but all of international soccer! The USA star scored four goals in the first half of Thursday’s friendly against South Korea to match, and then surpass, Mia Hamm’s old record of 158 goals. Wambach now sits at 160 goals for her stunning international career.

Even more impressive: it took Wambach 68 fewer games than Hamm to reach the record!

Hamm, a teammate of Wambach’s as her own career was nearing the end in 2004, was quick to congratulate:

Here’s an iconic image of the current and the old record holder:

She wasn’t the only one to tweet out some props. The President himself had a few words to say, er, tweet:

Indeed, the only ones not happy about this milestone might be jealous Mexico fans:

Congratulations, Abby!
