COVENTRY, England, Aug. 9, 2012 -- Former James Madison women's soccer player Christina "Corky" Julien ('10) has earned a bronze medal as an alternate on Canada's Olympic Team.
Canada beat France 1-0 in Thursday's bronze-medal match, winning on a goal scored in injury time by Diana Matheson.
Julien has 48 international appearances with Canada since joining the team in February 2009. She was a starter on Canada's gold-medal team in last fall's Pan American Games and played for Canada in the 2011 World Cup in Germany.
She was designated as an alternate just prior to the beginning of the games in London.
Julien, a former JMU All-America, was the 2008 Colonial Athletic Association Player of the Year. She completed her collegiate career ranked second on JMU's career goals list (44), second on the career points list (102) and tied 18th on the career assist list (14). Julien scored a JMU-record 19 career game-winning goals.
