Megan Rapinoe: Much More Than Sportsperson Of The Year

On Monday night, Sports Illustrated recognized Megan Rapinoe with the 65th edition of what is, by all accounts, its most prestigious honor: the Sportsperson of the Year award.

The shiny silver cup was just the latest of many 2019 accolades for the pink-haired footballer, who feuded with President Donald Trump and fearlessly spoke out against injustice en route to a World Cup win, Golden Ball and Golden Boot accolades, and a Ballon d'Or.

While there's little doubt that the controversial US Women's National Team star was the natural choice to win Sportsperson of the Year, the magnitude and seemingly enduring nature of her impact on the women's sports landscape and beyond renders the award comparatively trivial.
