KidSport Winnipeg has announced Olympian Desiree Scott will be a KidSport athlete ambassador.

Scott was part of the women’s soccer team that won the bronze medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics. She has been a professional soccer player since 2006 and plays midfield for FC Kansas City in the National Women’s Soccer League.

"I’m truly honoured to have been asked to become a KidSport athlete ambassador," said Scott. "Sports have been a huge part of my life and I am thankful that I now have the opportunity to help KidSport get more kids playing the sports they love! Without KidSport’s assistance I truly believe I’d have missed out on many of my life’s experiences, especially the Olympic Games."

KidSport is a national charity that aims to provide financial support to children so they have the opportunity to play organized sport. Scott and KidSport Winnipeg plan to hold a soccer camp for girls in October 2013.
