Football’s one and only somersault princess

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

What do you get when you cross a Brazilian female football player with an American cheerleader?

Meet São Paulo born, Chicago raised 17-year-old Leah Fortune, who plays left-back for the Brazil’s U20 football team and is one of the stars of the South American Championship, being held in Porto Alegre.

Check out her trademark move to understand why the fuss.

With the acrobatic help of the Somersault Princess, who plays back home – Illinois, it is – for the Wheaton Academy Warriors and Team Chicago, Brazil is pounding the opponents and will be a certain presence at the U20 Women’s World Cup, in Chile. We can’t wait to see more of her.

Go Leah! Go Leah!
