Rapinoe made a strong first impression at her World Cup debut in 2011
Rapinoe was born for the big moment.
After scoring her first World Cup goal in 2011, Rapinoe celebrated by picking up a broadcast microphone at the corner of the field and singing the chorus from Bruce Springsteens Born in the U.S.A.
She owned the moment like a boss, making it the first of Rapinoes many highlights in international play. The next came that year in the quarterfinals when, two minutes into extra time, she sent a 50-yard cross to the far post where Abby Wambach headed in the equalizer in what became a dramatic win for Team USA.
Team USA won Olympic gold in 2012 thanks to Rapinoes two goals over Canada
The United States was runner-up in the 2011 World Cup, but made up for it the following year by winning gold at the 2012 London Olympics.
Rapinoe scored the tying goal twice in the semifinals (14 minutes apart) to lift the U.S. to a 4-3 win over Canada. She then assisted on a goal during a 2-1 win over Japan in the final to help the USWNT capture gold.
Megan Rapinoe and Sue Bird are engaged couple looking to capture more gold for Team USA
Rapinoe is engaged to basketball legend Sue Bird, a four-time gold medalist and star of the WNBAs Seattle Storm. The power couple first met, quite fittingly, at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
Bird and Rapinoe got engaged in October 2020, but wedding planning probably has taken a backseat to Olympic training. Both athletes are headed to Tokyo looking to capture more gold medals for Team USA.
Rapinoe was named Sports Illustrateds Sportsperson of the Year in 2019
Rapinoe joined an exclusive list in 2019 when she was named Sports Illustrateds Sportsperson of the Year in the then-66-year history of the award.
She joined Chris Evert, Mary Decker and Serena Williams as the only other female athletes to receive the honor.
Rapinoe netted what proved to be the winning goal in the final of the 2019 World Cup, becoming the oldest woman to score in a World Cup final at age 34. She scored on a penalty kick to break a scoreless tie and celebrated by spreading her arms as teammate Alex Morgan jumped on her back an iconic photo that graced the cover of Sports Illustrated.
A vocal advocate for equality, Rapinoe met with President Biden in March
Rapinoe has long been outspoken on racial and gender discrimination, taking her battle for equal pay as far as the White House. Speaking in front of President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden in March, Rapinoe highlighted the disparity in pay between the U.S. Womens National Team and their male counterparts, despite overwhelming success on the field in recent years.
Ive been devalued, Ive been disrespected and dismissed because I am a woman. Ive been told that I dont deserve any more than less because I am a woman, Rapinoe said. Despite all of the wins, I am still paid less than men who do the same job that I do. For each trophy of which there are many for each win, each tie and for each time that we play, its less.

Carli Lloyd, one of the faces of U.S. Women’s Soccer, decided to stand for the national anthem prior to a game against Colombia on Monday night -- the first time she started in a game since March 2020.

Her decision to stand prompted a reporter to ask her about it Tuesday.
'I think the beauty of this team is that we stand behind each other, no matter what,' Lloyd said in response. 'And uh, some players decided to kneel, and some players decided to stand, and at the end of the day, we have each other’s backs.'
Lloyd added: 'Ultimately, we’re here to support one another in any way that we can, and that’s what’s amazing about this team.'
Lloyd’s teammate Megan Rapinoe began kneeling for the anthem back in 2016, around the same time former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started the popular trend, which he used as a vehicle for peacefully protesting systematic racism and police brutality.
Soon after, more athletes in the NFL, NBA, and WNBA, among others, decided to follow suit.
The U.S. Women’s soccer team wore 'Black Lives Matter' shirts during their warmup session Monday night, but Lloyd and midfielder Lindsey Horan decided to stand when the anthem began playing. Lynn Williams and Crystal Dunn, two Black players on the team, were kneeling with Rapinoe and the rest of the team.
Back in November prior to a game in the Netherlands, the U.S. women’s soccer team wore 'Black Lives Matter' jerseys and they all kneeled for the anthem.
'We love our country, and it is a true honor to represent America. It is also our duty to demand that the liberties and freedoms that our country was founded on extend to everyone,' the team said in a statement at that time.
'Today, we wear Black Lives Matter to affirm human decency. We protest against racial injustice and police brutality against Black people. We protest against the racist infrastructures that do not provide equal opportunity for Black and brown people to fulfill their dreams, including playing on this team,' the statement continued.
'As the United States Women’s National team players, we collectively work toward a society where the American ideals are upheld, and Black lives are no longer systematically targeted,' the team said, adding, 'Black Lives Matter.'
