Leslie has been a superstar athlete for the majority of her life. Born in Menomonee Fall, Wisconsin, Leslie Osborne took to sports naturally. She played basketball, volleyball, tennis, soccer, track, cross country, swimming - almost any sport you could think of, really, growing up and it was not until the age of 14 did she decide to focus on soccer. Since, she's been honing her skills and has become one of the world's best female soccer players. Here's an up close interview with this fast foot action girl:

Question: I've gained a few pounds over the holidays and one of my New Year's Resolutions is to hit the gym and make sure I shed those extra pounds. Do you have some fitness tips to help me keep my resolve?
It’s okay. You gained a few extra pounds over the holiday. After all, they are a time for family and friends, celebration, food, and drink. Don’t beat yourself up for “letting yourself go” and jump into a rigorous fitness routine that may be difficult for you to maintain.
With 2011 on its last legs, it’s time to start making some new running resolutions for 2012. Where should you start though? Maybe last year you set out with high hopes, but found your goal wasn’t actually within reach. On the other hand, maybe you set your sights too low, and it all came too easily for your own good. Even if you were right on par with last year’s proposition, we’ve got a few new running resolutions that might make next year all the more exciting.
