Athletes care about more than just their sports. And if you need any proof of that fact, all you have to do is take one look at the social media feeds of some of the most prominent women athletes in the country.
This Nov. 8, many shared their thoughts on the historic election and how they’re getting out the vote by not just exercising their muscles, but also their civic duty to elect the next President of the United States.
So will it be Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump? Regardless of who wins or loses—feelings that all athletes understand well—most believe it’s important to play their position well in the greater game of democracy.
