7 Facts About USWNT Star Megan Rapinoe That Somehow Make Her Even More Legendary
Megan Rapinoe has been on a roll since 2019. The cocaptain of the US women's soccer team took home both the Golden Boot and Golden Ball awards at the 2019 Women's World Cup — as well as, you know, the title — and closed out an epic year as Sports Illustrated's Sportsperson of the Year.
