The protest of the National Anthem and American flag ingested by 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has now extended his bounds outside of football.

On Sunday night, women’s soccer star Megan Rapine followed in Kaepernick’s footsteps and kneeled during the playing of the anthem before her team, the Seattle Reign took on the Chicago Red Stars in a NWSL game.

The match concluded in a 2-2 draw, with Rapine telling the media postgame as well as posting a tweet that the kneel was “a nod to [Colin] Kaepernick.”

She later took to Twitter to further discuss her protest.

Rapinoe is the 4th pro athlete in a week to refuse to stand for the anthem, joining of course Kaepernick along with his Niners’ teammate Eric Reid, and Seahawks’ Jeremey Lane.

She is a World Cup and gold medal winner with the U.S. Women’s National Team, becomes the first non-black professional player to join in protesting the national anthem since Kaepernick gained notoriety for sitting out the anthem in 49ers preseason games.

After sitting during the playing of the anthem during preseason games, Kaepernick elected to kneel during the anthem for the team’s final preseason game this past week and was joined by teammate Eric Reid.
