Megan Rapinoe of the United States women's national soccer team (USWNT) created history on Monday after she became the second-ever woman to win the prestigious Ballon d'Or Féminin (honoring the best woman football player over the year).
As she continues to scale greater heights in the sport, we take a look at some of the interesting facts about her.
While she has had immense success with the United States women's national soccer team (USWNT), it is to be noted that besides the regular national tournaments, she also holds an Olympic gold for the same.
It was during the 2012 London Olympics where the US beat Japan 2-1 in the final, while she went on to score three goals during the tournament.
Megan led a lawsuit against the United States Soccer Federation
In one of the bold moves made by Megan, she had led a lawsuit against the United States Soccer Federation (USSF), accusing them of gender discrimination.
"There's such an incredible movement around women happening right now, though it's not quick enough. There's still so much tension and push-back, whether it's racial issues or gender issues or pay disparity," she had said earlier this year.
Having played three World Cups and winning two, Megan has surely become a legendary figure in the US. As a result, her face was also featured in a corn maze, in 2015, at the Hawes Farm in Anderson, California, as Megan applauded the idea.
