This week has been full of Barbie announcements. Recently, we found out that Barbie will now come in four different shapes and eight new skin tones. And, on February 2, lesbian soccer star Abby Wambach announced on her Instagram that the makers of Mattel have released an Abby Wambach Barbie.

Wambach is a two-time Olympic gold medalist and FIFA Women’s World Cup champion. The 35-year-old retired last year after a 15-year career that began in September 2001. In her last year, the U.S. Women’s National Soccer team won the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup becoming the first three-time FIFA Women’s World Cup winner. Wambach also made headlines when she ran to the sidelines to kiss her wife Sarah Huffman after winning the World Cup.

The doll was revealed at the MAKERS conference, where Wambach said:

“I’m not going to lie, you guys might not believe this… but I was a Barbie kid. I played with Barbies my whole life. I know about playing with Barbies who may or may not have looked like I felt – and I feel like this is a really impactful statement. It just proves we really are getting somewhere.”

Now, the question is, where do we buy one?
