Megan Rapinoe is one of the dozens of out Olympians who will compete in the Olympic Games this summer in Rio. As a member of the National Women’s Soccer League, she helped the U.S. win gold at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup, and the 2012 London Olympics. The team also won silver at the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Despite being part of gold medal winning team, Rapinoe and her teammates are paid significantly less than the men’s national team. Rapinoe was one of five players to file a complaint against the US Soccer Federation saying, "Don't accept something you know in your heart and you know in your gut to be unequal." Additionally, Rapinoe has spoken out about LGBT equality at the Olympics, and wrote an op-ed encouraging athletes to come out at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi.

Megan Rapinoe is a total badass on and off the field, but she also has a goofier side. This Olympic gold medalist is definitely not just like us, but she does love a good goofy-face Instagram or Twitter post just as much as we do.

Here are five of Megan’s most ridiculous mugs to make your week:

1) Somehow maintaining a straight face while doing a very long dance to "The Final Countdown"

Gob Bluth has nothing on Megan Rapinoe.

2) Embracing the terrifying reality of sheet masks

Everyone loves a good sheet mask, because everyone loves a beauty routine that allows them to run around the house making scary faces at roommates. 

3) She perfectly captures all of our feelings about airports


Kansas City Airport got me like... Love ya KC but this airport is grim

Especially our feelings about tiny airports that have one Starbucks and a newsstand that both seemingly close in the middle of the afternoon.

4) She has a lot of fun with filters


Had to get my eyes dilated again today @merrmerr9 what you think #beyourbesteye

Because Olympians love filters just as much as the rest of us.

5) Her excited face is the cutest thing ever

Her excitement is contagious, because we absolutely can’t wait to see the U.S. Women’s National Team compete in Rio this year.
