Out soccer star Megan Rapinoe lead her team throughout the tournament and was key to the U.S. reaching this gold-winning game.

Other openly LGBT Olympians are on track to medal. American tennis player Lisa Raymond won bronze in Sunday’s mixed doubles finals. And Seimone Augustus and the powerhouse U.S. women’s basketball team are poised to take home another gold on Saturday.
