Soccer star Abby Wambach gives fans an emotional goodbye

Passes the torch with "Forget me" in farewell Gatorade spot

Two-time Olympic gold medalist Abby Wambach has wowed fans for years. Tonight, she’ll make them cry, or least tear up a little, with the emotional farewell she gives in this Gatorade spot, airing during her final game for the US national soccer team. Instead of celebratory snapshots of her record-breaking career (she has scored the most goals of any soccer player), this ad features the retiring athlete in quiet reflection, as she packs up her locker and passes the torch to a new generation. "Forget me," she urges, in a powerful, final message to fans that is sure to be remembered.
