Winning an Olympic gold medal is a big deal. Winning an Olympic gold medal and getting to celebrate at the Allianz Arena is even better. Five players from Bayern Frauen were part of the Germany squad that won the gold medal match against Sweden at the Maracanã Stadium.
Before the Bayern men kicked off against Werder Bremen on Friday evening, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge took to the field to honor the players. Simone Laudehr, Melanie Behringer, Leonie Maier, Sara Däbritz, and Melanie Leupolz all received the traditional bouqet as they were greeted by the sold out arena.
