Lauren Sesselmann: Photos You Need To See

Since making her international debut with Canada in 2011, Lauren Sesselmann has made an impact on her squad. Now hosting the Women's World Cup, Sesselmann and Canada look to make a splash in the global game for the first time ever. Lauren has come a long way from her beginnings in Wisconsin, where she was a star athlete in high school. She parlayed her success into an education at Purdue, where she played all four years and broke six school records. Although she had personal success, Lauren went unnoticed at the international level until she used her dad's origins to become a Canadian citizen. Canada was just coming back from the 2011 World Cup in Germany, where they finished winless and with the worst goal differential in the tournament. Since adding Sesselmann to the lineup, Canada has steadily improved and entered the World Cup ranked 8th in the world. Outside of soccer, Sesselmann is the host of her own series of workout videos, and has had success endorsing fitness brands and products (Photo: Instagram @lsesselm).
