Brandi is an iconic U.S. sporting figure. Brandi and her U.S. teammates brought women’s soccer to the masses during the 1999 Women's World Cup finals. That's when Brandi scored a goal on a penalty kick after the second overtime of the U.S. versus China match and struck her famous pose. She was photographed on her knees, mouth wide open, eyes closed, fists in the air, wearing a black sports bra, and white soccer shorts. Her celebration pose was featured in magazines and newspapers around the world. After that, Brandi became a household name. People knew her for her sports bra, but she's much more than that. She is a devoted wife, a mom, coach, an author, philanthropist, and more.
Brandi has been one of the best ambassadors for soccer during her playing and post playing career. She has faced adversity while winning Two World Cups, Two Olympic Golds, One Olympic Silver, the Inaugural WUSA Championship, and recorded 192 caps in her International Career. Last summer she was elected into the US Soccer Hall of Fame. 2019 will mark the 20th Anniversary of her iconic Penalty Kick.
Brandi is now the Director and a Coach of the California Thorns Soccer Academy and also devotes her time to a non-profit she started called BAWSI - www.bawsi.org
