28/10/2010US Women’s National Soccer Team Is Charmed by Dolphins in Cancun

Just a few days away from kicking off their participation in the Women’s World Cup Qualifying Tournament defining the two CONCACAF picks who will participate in the Women’s World Cup to be held in Germany in June 2011, the US Women’s National Team – one of the most favored to win – accepted an invitation from the renowned dolphinarium chain, Delphinus, to swim and interact with dolphins, one of the signature activities of Cancun, the host city of the World Cup qualifier.

The American squad enjoyed exclusive interaction with the dolphins in Delphinus Dreams Cancun, the dolphinarium located in the heart of the hotel zone of this world-class tourist destination, and were amazed by the “dolphin’s accessibility”, as they called it.

Defender Christie Rampone, Forward Abbie Wambach, who has scored 101 goals in 131 games, Defender Heather Mitts, who has been Team Captain on more than 100 occasions, Midfielder Rachel Buehler, one of the 15 highest scorers of the US Women’s Team, and Kristine Lilly, the award-winning veteran player who is the USA’s leader in qualifying appearances, were among those selected for the team. These key players and their teammates were thrilled with their swim with dolphin experience, which included being kissed and “foot-pushed” by the dolphins, an experience where you are rapidly pushed along in the water by these delightful creatures.

The US team expressed their gratitude to the Committee organizer and Delphinus for having given them “such a special time” in the company of the ocean’s most charming cetaceans.
