Megan Rapinoe joined SportsCenter on Thursday to discuss all things Women's World Cup. At one point, the midfielder for the Women's National Team was given a simple but difficult task: define yourself in one word. And, well, she seized the opportunity.
Rapinoe is a proud and openly gay woman and a former recipient of the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center's Board of Directors Award. She's also just one of the many openly gay athletes who participated in the Women's World Cup this year -- one area where their male peers are still lagging far, far behind.
