Competition is definitely heating up at the Summer Olympics as this soccer match took some serious toughness and sportsmanship to win.

Showing the aftermath of this violent incident, Wambach tweeted a pic of her swollen, black eye with the caption, “Thanks for all the well wishes. Eye is healing fine. #reversesmokeyeye #notcool.”

She channeled her anger and frustration into unstoppable motivation to beat the Colombian team.
