US soccer star Megan Rapinoe takes time to stand still for BodyArmor appreciation

Megan Rapinoe has been burning up the pitch at the Fifa Women’s World Cup for the US. Ahead of the upcoming semi-final against England, sports drink brand BodyArmor has released a new spot celebrating the USWNT co-captain.

Rapinoe has been a breakout star for the US team this World Cup, both on and off the field – from her stellar play and veteran leadership to her social media jabs with Trump.

Rapinoe joined BodyArmor as an ambassador in March 2018, and now, as the team prepares to take on England and return to the finals to defend their last World Cup win, BodyArmor is paying tribute to her in a video spot.

In the black and white short film, Rapinoe stands in what looks like a training facility, looking down with her trademark steely stare into the camera.

A simple beat plays in the background as the text rolls through, stating: "Nothing like a 30-something, purple haired, fiercely independent, goal-scoring, guitar-strumming, outspoken, relentless competitor that stands for all that is beautiful, all that is good, all that is us. Now that’s America.

"Thanks, Megan. Let’s go USA!”

The video can be seen on YouTube and on Rapinoe’s Instagram.
