Kelley O’Hara is doubling down on her partnership with Just Women’s Sports. The soccer superstar joined fellow elite athletes Elena Delle Donne, Hilary Knight, Sam Mewis, Arike Ogunbowale and Kevin Durant in Just Women’s Sports’ latest round of seed funding.

“I’m excited to double down on my partnership with Just Women’s Sports,” O’Hara says. “We’re long overdue for a platform to exist that covers the world class athletes competing out there and the amazing stories behind them.”

Alongside her investment, O’Hara is also returning to the recording booth for a new season of the Just Women’s Sports Podcast presented by Heineken®.

The O’Hara-hosted series goes deep with fellow superstar athletes, tracking professional successes, hardships and everything in-between.

The first episode drops Wednesday, May 19, with guest Sam Mewis. The USWNT teammates break down Mewis’ record-breaking career, the Tokyo Olympics and Sam’s own new podcast with Just Women’s Sports.

To O’Hara, sharing athletes’ stories is crucial to the growth of the women’s game.

“As a professional soccer player, I’ve experienced firsthand how important visibility is for women’s sports and in order to grow the game for everyone, we need investment like this”

The Just Women’s Sports Podcast presented by Heineken® launched at #1 in the sports category on Apple Podcasts last year and is available on all major podcast platforms, with new episodes launching each Wednesday.
