The U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team hosted their own private Olympics celebration.
The USWNT were unable to attend the Opening Ceremony because they were preparing for an upcoming game against New Zealand, so they decided to have their own ceremony at their hotel.
The amazing clip showed defender Abby Dahlkemper and forward Megan Rapinoe proudly marching into their makeshift Olympics stadium, dressed in their opening ceremony uniforms. Rapinoe’s fiancée, Sue Bird, was the flag bearer for Team USA.
Watch the USWNT battle New Zealand live at 7:30 a.m E.T on NBCSN or stream live here.
