Andi Sullivan knows what it’s like to be on the end of big phone calls.
Last year, it was a call that landed her on the outside of a World Cup roster that went on to win glory in France. This year, it was a call that earned her a place on the United States women’s national team’s 20-player squad that will try to win a spot in the Olympic Games over the next two weeks.
Sullivan admits that she was happily surprised this time around. She had braced herself for bad news, especially knowing that she was competing with several more experienced veterans.
“I’ve been on the end of phone calls where it doesn’t go that way, so I think in my mind I was prepared for a disappointing call,” she told The Equalizer.
