Fresh off the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, 2x gold medalist, Golden Boot and Golden Ball winner, Megan Rapinoe is joining the Mendi team as its first signed Athlete Ambassador.
Megan's expertise as a highly sought after high profile athlete adds tremendous value and credibility to our brand as we build an alliance of elite and professional athletes across all sports. Megan is also joining Team Mendi as a Board Advisor & Strategic Partner, to help with brand strategy and product development. Megan has cemented her legacy in the professional sports world as one of the most prolific and iconic athletes of her time, however she is equally recognized for her advocacy work off the pitch. Aligning herself with the equality and social justice movements the past several years, Megan prides herself on empowering everyone to be their best selves, while demanding a more fair and equitable environment for everyone.
Together, we are working with Megan to build a brighter future for sports, utilizing hemp-derived recovery tools to help all athletes stay at top performance. Although CBD products are still stigmatized in most pro leagues, there is no better athlete to lead the charge in moving the needle for cannabis use as an alternative recovery tool. For Megan, disrupting the status quo is the equivalent of ‘just another day in the office’ for most people. With the Mendi brand being built from the ground up rooting for the underdog and fighting for change, our company mindset now has an unmatched personality at the forefront of our efforts–pioneering change so that others can be treated more fairly.
Role with Mendi
With the help of Megan and her network of professional athletes, Mendi is poised to be the most trusted CBD sports brand in the market. Megan is eager to have a robust role on the Mendi team, providing knowledge and feedback regarding the brand, voice, positioning, growth and product development.
