TOKYO (AP) — Much has been made about Carli Lloyd's age. The American forward will be — gasp! — 39 when the Olympics soccer tournament kicks off.
But for all the focus on Lloyd, she's not even going to be the oldest athlete competing in Tokyo.
RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Marta and Formiga will lead Brazil's women's soccer team at the Tokyo Olympics in what is expected to be their international swansong.
The 35-year old Marta has a silver medal from 2008, and 43-year-old Formiga has silver medals from 2004 and 2008.
