  • Erin Katrina McLeod (born February 26, 1983) is a Canadian soccer player, Olympic bronze medalist and visual artist. A veteran goalkeeper for the Canada women's national soccer team, she also plays for Växjö DFF. She first appeared for the Canada women's national soccer team at the 2002 Algarve Cup and has since made 116 appearances for the team. In 2012, as part of the Canadian Soccer Association's Centennial Celebration, she was honoured on the All-Time Canada XI women's team. McLeod has represented Canada in three FIFA Women's World Cups: 2007 in China, 2011 in Germany and 2015 in Canada. She has played in two Olympic tournaments: 2008 in Beijing and 2012 in London where she helped Canada win the bronze medal. Before joining FC Rosengård in 2015, she played professional soccer for the Vancouver Whitecaps, Washington Freedom, Dalsjöfors GoIF, Chicago Red Stars, and Houston Dash. She played collegiate soccer for the Southern Methodist University Mustangs as well as the Penn State Nittany Lions where she set several all-time records. McLeod's most notable and controversial appearance came during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. In the semi-final match against the United States on August 6, the referee ruled that McLeod had broken the six-second handling rule in the 76th minute, when Canada was leading 3–2. A free kick was given to the United States which resulted in a penalty being called on Canadian player Marie-Ève Nault after the ball struck her in the arm. The United States was given a penalty kick, which McLeod did not save. The United States ultimately won the game in overtime, eliminating Canada's chance for the gold medal. McLeod has suffered three ACL injuries to her right knee. The most recent occurred on March 23, 2016 while playing for FC Rosengård that kept her out for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
