Megan’s a terrific player. She is one of those who takes pride in her technical game. She loves freedom of expression, whether with her hairstyle or her magic on the ball. She is a player who just loves the game and that attitude is infectious.

Throwback Thursday. Wyomia Tyus, 1968.
“Wyomia Tyus was there to witness one of the most memorable events in Olympic history. She watched as Tommie Smith and John Carlos bowed their heads, raised their fists, and silently protested the country that had shown such incredible racial injustice.

What they did lasted a lifetime, and life is bigger than sport.” Tommie Smith and John Carlos were not the only athletes to make history at these 1968 Olympics. Tyus became the first runner, male or female, to defend her title in the 100-meter dash.”
