Add U.S. women's soccer player Abby Wambach to the list of openly LGBT athletes. Wambach married her girlfriend, fellow soccer player Sarah Huffman, this weekend in Hawaii, TMZ reports.

Multiple sources confirm ... Abby and pro soccer player Sarah Huffman swapped "I dos" on Saturday at the Villas at Po'ipu Kai on the island of Kauai.
