Megan Rapinoe is currently in a race to be fit for the 2016 Olympics in August after tearing the ACL in her right knee on Dec. 4.
The timeline of being back to playing shape by the end of July is a tall order, but the always upbeat Rapinoe has been keeping fans updated on her recovery through social media. Her recovery includes strength-building exercises and…drums? Yes, badass drumming:
