Sports Bra Episode
On July 10, 1999, at the Women’s World Cup at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, after scoring the fifth kick in the penalty shootout to give the United States the win over China in the final game, Chastain celebrated by spontaneously whipping off her jersey and falling to her knees in a sports bra, her fists clenched. This image was featured on the covers of Time, Newsweek, and Sports Illustrated.
Chastain’s take on the incident was “Momentary insanity, nothing more, nothing less. I wasn’t thinking about anything. I thought, ‘This is the greatest moment of my life on the soccer field.’”
