LIVING THE DREAM

Introducing Sara Däbritz

Childhood dreams don't always come true. But at the age of eight, Sara Däbritz knew she wanted to be a pro footballer—and 16 years later, she'll be representing her country on the biggest stage of all.

It wasn't all plain sailing. When she was growing up, football was still seen a 'boys' sport' so there was little support for young girls wanting to play. But her belief was matched by her parents, both pro footballers themselves, who supported her every step of the way.

HER PHILOSOPHY

She now has her sights set on being a champion. Her philosophy is always the same: "If you are successful you have to remember where you came from," she explains. "Stay down-to-earth and warm, and treat people openly and positively."
