Best known for her game-winning moment in the 1999 World Cup Tournament, where she ripped off her shirt and revealed her sports bra, Olympian Brandi Chastain is taking it off once again!
This weekend the retired soccer star was an active participant in NYC's MoonWalk, an event designed to raise money for breast cancer research.
“I have to say, I've only repeated the celebration maybe once or twice," she shared. "So I don't do it very often, but I will do it for special causes and good reason and the MoonWalk obviously is one of the best reasons."
Over 1,500 other people took to the streets of New York and joined Brandi in reenacting her famous moment, putting their own sports bras on full display for the cause.
“It wasn't hard at all to get the walkers to take off their shirts,” Brandi shared after the event. “The camaraderie was amazing and all the participants were enthusiastic and loved showing off their amazingly colorful bras.”
