Latest: Monday September 25, 2000 09:05 PM
Midfielder John O'Brien is a key member of the U.S. men's Olympic soccer team, which headed Down Under and did what it had never done before: make it out of the first round alive. O'Brien, 23, left California at age 17 to develop in Ajax Amsterdam's famed youth program. He is now a member of the first team at Ajax and has earned a spot in the full U.S. national team side during World Cup qualifying.
Check in with O'Brien on CNNSI.com throughout the Olympics.
