Just more than nine months ago, Maryland alum Keli Smith-Puzo was pregnant with her second son. On Monday, she became one of seven players with area ties to be named to the U.S. Olympic field hockey squad.
All Olympic hopefuls face their fair share of challenges. Keli Smith-Puzo's also happen to be her life's greatest blessings.
After failing to qualify for the Olympics in 2004 and finishing eighth in Beijing, Smith-Puzo said the team's mentality has changed.
"I think that this team, combined with the experience and the youth that's so talented, can hit the medals," said Smith-Puzo, who scored three goals for the U.S. in the Beijing Games in 2008. "I've always been one to set goals that I think are reachable and attainable, and I truly think that this team can be on the podium."
