      The United States Women's National Team celebrated their World Cup win on Wednesday with a ticker-tape parade through the streets of New York City.

      Midfielder Rose Lavelle was one of the breakout stars of the tournament for the United States, winning the bronze ball as the third-best player at the World Cup and scoring America's game-sealing second goal in the final.

      For Lavelle, the moment was the culmination of a lifetime of work and effort, and as a recently surfaced video shows, juggling.

      Samer Kalaf of Deadspin brought to light a video sent along by a reader named Ashley that appears to show an 11-year-old Lavelle showing off her juggling skills in her backyard. The video is soundtracked by “Sweet Dreams” by Eurythmics.

      The video appears to have been uploaded by Lavelle's mother Janet Lavelle, as other videos from the account “jdl1962” show highlights from Rose's high school days, including a last-second goal from a 2009 state tournament.

      But while Lavelle's highlights are impressive, the best video is undoubtedly the one entitled “Sweet Dreams: 11-year-old girl juggler,” which appears to show an 11-year-old Lavelle pulling off a few tricks.

      It's not the first time since the Americans' World Cup win that a moment from Lavelle's childhood has gone viral.

      Just hours after the USWNT lifted the trophy, St. Vincent Ferrer School, which Lavelle attended in her youth, celebrated her big win by posting a picture of the USWNT champion as a child when she had dressed up as Mia Hamm as part of a school project.

      Both moments go to show that Lavelle's arrival on the international stage is no accident, but rather something she's been working towards her entire life. And at just 24 years old, you can expect Lavelle to be an important part of the team for years to come.
