| Last updated
Megan Rapinoe and her fiance, Sue Bird, are an Olympic power couple to say the least. Both have impressive track records in their disciplines and they have seven gold medals combined.
With Team USA athletes known to be awarded a handsome cash prize from Olympic medals, fans want to know how much the sportswomen are worth.
Megan Rapinoe and Sue Bird: Who are they?
Megan Rapinoe is an American soccer player and Sue Bird is a basketball player. They started dating after competing at the 2016 Rio Olympics and got engaged in October 2020. Both are representing Team USA in Tokyo this year.
Rapinoe, 35, co-captained the USA's women's team in the FIFA Women's World Cup in 2019, which they won. She's also the captain of Seattle Reign FC.
To add to her list of achievements, Rapinoe is also the new face of Victoria's Secret. She was also due to front a major Subway campaign, but a controversial move at the Olympic games this year means she could now be axed from their new ad.
Bird, 40, has an equally impressive track record having won four championships with her basketball team, the WNBA's Seattle Storm. She's been playing for them since 2002.
Bird scored her fifth gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics this year, after winning against Japan.
Rapinoe wasted no time in showing how proud she was of her fiance after the win. Fans of the couple have been gushing over a video of the two sharing a moment following Bird's win in Tokyo, which is circulating on Twitter.
