    Olympic Soccer Family

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     This moustache-wearing family are celebrating the Olympics in their own unique way for a reason - they're supporting family member Tobin Heath, who is an Olympic Gold and FIFA Women's World Cup Silver medal-winning football player for the United States. Our iReporter chopsm spotted them at Newcastle train station - Newcastle is where Heath will be playing in the US team on Friday afternoon local time against New Zealand in the women's football quarter finals. So why the moustaches? "They were seen as a fun item to wear that did not take much packing space," our iReporter said they told him! After the game, they'll be heading to London for the rest of the games.

    The Heath family from New Jersey were out in force at Newcastle rail station in England today to greet family member Tobin Heath arrive from London.

     

    You may have heard of Tobin, she is an Olympic Gold and FIFA Women's World Cup Silver medal-winning soccer player for the United States and is in Newcastle for today's USA vs New Zealand game.

     

    So what about those moustaches? Well they were seen as a fun item to wear that did not take much packing space. The Heath family arrived in Newcastle from a visit to historic Edinburgh in Scotland and after today's happy reunion they are heading next to London and the Olympic games.
