Kelley O'Hara is a soccer player competing at the 2012 London Summer Olympics for the USA.

Kelley O'Hara of the U.S. women's soccer team attended Stanford University. She likes to put water on her cereal, one day wants to move to the mountains and be a ski bum, and wishes she had a pet squirrel. At the end of her collegiate career, O'Hara had scored a total of 57 goals for the Cardinal, second all-time in program history.

O'Hara is one of the USA's top young players with extensive youth National Team experience. Despite playing forward for her entire college career, she has shown the ability to make an impact at outside midfield (which she played for the U.S. youth teams) or outside back.

In 2011 O'Hara played in four matches, starting one, that coming against Canada in January at the Four Nations Tournament in China. She was an alternate on the Women's World Cup Team but made the final squad due to an injury to Lindsay Tarpley and ended up playing in one game, coming on as a substitute in the USA's final group match against Sweden.

In 2010 she earned her first three senior team caps, debuting against Mexico on March 28 in San Diego. In 2009 she called in to train with full U.S. Women's National Team in December after a stellar senior season at Stanford. In 2007 she earned first call-up to training camp with the full WNT in March.

O'Hara was a U.S. Soccer Young Female Athlete of the Year finalist in 2008 and 2009. She played for the U.S. U-23 Women's National Team in 2009 and for the U-21s in 2007. She ended her U-20 international career as one of the USA's all-time leading scorers at that level with 24 goals in 35 U-20 caps. She played in 12 international matches for the U-20s in 2008, scoring 10 goals, but was not selected for the World Cup team. She played in five matches at the CONCACAF U-20 Women's World Cup Qualifying Tournament, starting four, while tying for the team lead in scoring with six goals (which included a hat trick against Cuba). She played in 29 matches for the U-20s in 2006 leading into the Women's World Cup in Russia, scoring 18 goals, including two against the full U.S. Women's National Team and a hat trick against the Finland U-20s. She played in four matches at the 2006 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup, scoring two goals, including a huge score in the quarterfinal victory against Germany. She also scored in a first round win against DR Congo. Her first call-up to the U-20 National Team came in January of 2006. She was a member of the U.S. team that won the 2006 CONCACAF Under-20 Final Women's Qualifying Tournament in Mexico. She played in four matches in Mexico, starting two, and scored one goal with two assists.

She played with U.S. U-17s Women's National Team in 2005, leading the team in scoring with 10 goals. She played with the U.S. U-16s in 2004 and also was called into a U-17 camp that year. She scored in both matches for the U-17s against the German U-17s in late February of 2005. She also scored against Japan in 2005 and had five goals on a tour of Brazil in December of 2005. Her first appearance was on March 28, 2010 vs. Mexico.
