Olympic soccer star fails on ‘Happy Gilmore’ golf shot (video)

Feb 27, 2014, 4:36 PM EDT

Sydney Leroux is an excellent striker, but not of golf balls.

The 2012 Olympic champion poked fun at herself in posting a Vine of her attempt at pulling a “Happy Gilmore” on what appears to be a driving range. She fell on her backswing but lived to laugh about it.

The Canadian-born Leroux, who turns 24 on May 7, was the youngest member of the 2012 U.S. Olympic Women’s Soccer Team that won gold in London.

The U.S. women are getting set for the Algarve Cup beginning next week in Portugal. Leroux could play a key role with Alex Morgan sidelined by an ankle injury.

      Lucky thing you aren’t a sexist moron FNC, or you might say something, you know, unbelievably ignorant.

    Pretty funny. And I’d watch more women’s golf if they dressed like that. Love the pants…and the hat.
