(CNN)The coronavirus pandemic has brought the careers of many athletes to an abrupt halt. But US soccer star Carli Lloyd is taking it all in stride.
Lloyd, who turns 38 in July and plans to play in 2021, spoke Saturday at a virtual panel hosted by Yahoo Sports and the Women's Sports Foundation about young athletes' mental health during the pandemic. She said the downtime has resulted in "the best training that I've ever had in my entire career."
"There's nothing to worry about. There's nothing on my schedule. I literally go train. I'm getting more fit. I'm getting sharper, and I'm just able to kind of spend my whole mind on this task of just training and getting better, and I don't feel rushed," Lloyd said.
