The opening ceremony of the 2020 Summer Olympics took place this morning in Tokyo.
Unfortunately, the US Women's National Soccer Team could not attend the ceremony because of their upcoming games.
But that didn't stop teammates Megan Rapinoe and Abby Dahlkemper from hosting their own opening ceremony from their hotel. Megan even did her best impression of Team USA flag bearer and basketball legend Sue Bird, who's also her fiancée!
If you can’t go to the #OpeningCeremony, you bring the #OpeningCeremony to you 🇺🇸 @AbbyDahlkemper 🇺🇸 @mPinoe (as @S10Bird)
Bold choice to go with the runway pose at the end. Maybe that should be the new tradition during the opening ceremony, yeah?
The US women's team is coming off of one of its worst losses in decades to Sweden, so it's nice to see them still enjoying the moment.
Sweden stunned the United States at the #Olympics with a 3-0 victory Wednesday in the women’s soccer tournament. The U.S., ranked No. 1 in the world and the favorites to win gold in Tokyo, had been riding a 44-match unbeaten streak ahead of the game.https://t.co/1xATIYOSvE
