About Megan Rapinoe

Perhaps the biggest star in the sports world this year was Megan Rapinoe, the co-captain on the US women’s national soccer team. She won the Golden Boot and Golden Ball awards, scored her 50th career international goal, the US record, and took home the World Cup trophy, all on her way to being named FIFA’s best women’s player for 2019. Megan made waves off the field as a leading activist for social justice and women’s rights, filing a pay inequity suit against the US Soccer Federation, for gender discrimination. She’s just as big of a star on social media, where her 2M+ Instagram and 910K+ Twitter followers enjoy keeping up with the international star.
