Transgender woman poised to make Argentine soccer history

Soccer player Mara Gomez puts a ball back on the shelf full of her soccer trophies at her home in La Plata, Argentina, Thursday, Feb. 6, 2020. Gomez is a transgender woman who is limited to only training with her women's professional soccer team, Villa San Carlos, while she waits for permission to start playing from the Argentina Football Association (AFA). If approved, she would become the first trans woman to compete in a first division, professional Argentine AFA tournament.
