Alex Morgan and the United States women’s national team just wrapped up their time at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.
The United States women’s national team is leaving Japan with a medal, although it’s not the one they came for. Morgan and Co. took home the bronze medal in the Summer Olympics.
Morgan shared a heartfelt message for her team following the Olympics.
“Coming home with that fresh Bronze and couldn’t be more proud of this team!” Morgan wrote. “Battling until the end it’s been 40 days on the road and ending on a high makes it all worth it!!”
Morgan has become one of the sport’s leading voices both on and off the pitch. On the pitch, she remains one of the best players in the world. Off of it, she continues to grow her platform.
Back in 2014, Morgan became one of the first United States soccer stars to pose for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit released a behind-the-scenes look at her shoot on YouTube.
Morgan has posed for the iconic magazine issue multiple times. The United States women’s national team star was a cover model in 2019.
The 2021 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue hit newsstands last month. This year’s issue also features a superstar athlete.
Tennis star Naomi Osaka is one of three cover models for the 2021 edition of the magazine.
