USWNT Takes Trip to White House

It’s good to be the Champs of the World.

In the midst of their nationwide Victory Tour celebrating their 2015 World Cup title, Hope Solo and the United States Women’s National Team made a stop in the nation’s capital this week and on Tuesday morning they made their champions’ visit to the White House, a rite of passage for championship winning teams in the U.S.

It was a once in a lifetime opportunity for Hope, and the American goalkeeper documented the incredible experience on Twitter. She and her World Cup champion teammates took the full tour of the home of our nation’s presidents, concluding with a ceremony honoring the team by current President Barack Obama.

“This team taught all America’s children that playing like a girl means you’re a badass,” President Obama said. “Perhaps I shouldn’t have used that phrase. Playing like a girl means being the best.”
