Let’s talk about bras. U.S. Women’s National Team’s Kelley O’Hara was at the W South Beach hotel Wednesday night at an event held by new female-friendly store SIX: 02 in Aventura, fully embracing this important topic. As a fashion ambassador for Under Armour, the World Cup champ was enlightening attendees about her latest favorite accessory, the Armour Low Sports Bra. “They are super comfortable and a little sexy,” said the soccer star. “The Low is perfect with just normal clothes and wearing for different type of impact sports. It also makes you look good, feel confident and cuts out distractions.” Yes, O’Hara does do other activities besides soccer.
The World Cup champ often partakes in yoga as well as high-intensity aerobics; the 27-year-old actually popped into a strenuous but “fun” class held at the W’s Wall nightclub earlier led by trainer to the stars Keoni Hudoba. “I was really stoked to do that,” said O’Hara, who was born in Jacksonville and raised in Georgia.
“I love to get out there and sweat and mix things up, whether I’m on the field or in the gym.”
She does admit to still feeling still a bit fatigued after winning the World Cup last month, the USWNT’s first such victory since 1999, defeating Japan 5-2 in Vancouver, and led by Miami-based coach Jill Ellis.
“I’m wonderful, but at some points, I’m tired,” O’Hara said. “But I’d rather be exhausted than not to have won! It’s been a whirlwind but amazing. I’m so thankful for what we did out there.”
As for what is being put into that ridiculously toned body: “I would say I eat pretty clean for the most part. Everything in moderation. I don’t deny myself. Hey, I enjoy doughnuts as much as the next person. I mean, maybe I’ll give them up for Lent or something [laughs].”
