Sydney Leroux wipes out trying to go Happy Gilmore (Video)

Sydney Leroux is a tremendous soccer player, but her golf game needs a bit of work. The US women’s soccer star hit up the driving range in Portugal this week and tried to have a little fun channeling her inner Happy Gilmore. As you can see, she failed miserably at first.

Leroux eventually got it down and stroked what looked like a pretty decent drive.

We all know Leroux is a great soccer player. She also has some pretty smooth boxing skills, is incredibly creative with Halloween, and knows how to dominate a bikini. Golf? Eh, not so much.

Sydney Leroux boxingSydney Leroux is trying her hand at boxing and shared a video on Instagram Thursday of her at her first boxing class.

The US national team soccer star was initially cautious entering her training session, but issued a friendly warning to Floyd Mayweather after she got done.

“Don’t judge but I just picked up a new hobby. Mayweather I’m coming for you!” Leroux wrote as her Instagram caption.

Leroux is a fan of the fight game and was in attendance for UFC 167, so it’s not too surprising to see her try her hand at combat sports. She also looked pretty impressive working with the trainer, though her left could use some work.

Sydney Leroux, Alex Morgan, Hope Solo hitch ride with fans after bus breaks down

The US women’s soccer team had a bus malfunction en route to the Citrus Bowl for their game against Brazil on Saturday. By that, we mean their bus broke down.

But don’t worry, the team was able to make it to the stadium in time to dominate Brazil 4-1. How did they get there? Some fans that were passing by in central Florida were kind enough to scoop them up and give them a ride.

“Our bus broke down at the stadium,” Sydney Leroux wrote on Twitter along with the photo you see above. “Option A: Hitchhike with fans. Option B: Wait. What do you think we did?”

Hope Solo also tweeted her appreciation as she squeezed into the back seat of a car with Abby Wambach and some other teammates.

US women’s soccer stars Alex Morgan and Sydney Leroux have emerged as our favorite duo of  best friends to follow over the past several months, and they may have outdone themselves with their Halloween costumes. This year, the young ladies decided to dress as Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke.

More specifically, Morgan and Leroux dressed the way Cyrus and Thicke did for their infamous performance at the MTV Video Music Awards earlier this year. Morgan completely nailed the Miley look with her messed up hair and weird bunny-themed leotard. We have to assume she humped that foam finger at some point, otherwise she failed to get into character.

Alex Morgan owes Sydney Leroux cowboy boots over UCLA-Cal game

Alex-Morgan-Sydney-Leroux-bikinisUS women’s soccer stars Alex Morgan and Sydney Lerox are the best of friends. And what do best friends do when their alma maters square off in a big football game? They make friendly bets.

In this case, Morgan and Leroux decided to make a small wager on the UCLA-Cal game. Morgan went to Cal and Leroux went to UCLA. Assuming they hold to the bet, it would appear Morgan owes Leroux a pair of cowboy boots after the Bruins’ convincing 37-10 victory.

If you remember, Leroux also talked trash to Colin Kaepernick earlier this season after UCLA beat his alma mater, Nevada. Sydney is going to look pretty good in her ULCA jacket and cowboy boots.

Alex Morgan and Sydney Leroux are on vacation in Hawaii enjoying some very well-deserved time off. Just to remind you how good of a time they’re having, Leroux shared a few photos of her and Morgan hanging out at the beach in their bikinis.

Guess 50 hours of training for soccer per week does a body good, huh?

Morgan and Hope Solo got most of the shine when the USWNT blew up in popularity two years ago — rightfully so — but Leroux is starting to close that gap. If you don’t believe me, just take a look at some of the photos below.
