U.S. women's soccer player Abby Wambach goes for Olympic gold in London

Americans Olympians are just weeks away from their shot at gold in London this summer. That includes the women's soccer team, but for one player, physical training is only half of the battle.

Abby Wambach is fighting a mental battle after the break heard around the world. Before the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, Wambach was hurt in on-field collision in the final warm-up match, breaking her leg in two places.

But that was then, this is now. The women's team is looking strong and setting its focus on Japan, the team that blocked the American girls from clinching the 2011 World Cup. Wambach talks with Ashleigh Banfield on "Early Start" this morning about her dream of winning the gold this summer.

Wambach is also working with Arnold and Oroweat breads to inspire healthy living and eating. By going to Facebook.com/arnoldandoroweatbread you can win a clinic with Abby and learn more.
