Although feminists might argue, most women don't choose sports as a full-time career. There are a few ladies who take pride in their profession as a sportsperson, and fewer are those who leave a significant mark on the field; thus being called a legend. 

A prominent name in the U.S women's soccer team, Tobin Heath has contributed much to the glory of her nation. She has represented the states in three Olympics and won gold medals in two of them.

The aspiring footballer has not spared a chance to make her nation proud, and with her limited time focusing only in the career, she is not much spotted indulging in dating life.

The lack of a boyfriend has gracefully invited some gay-love rumors for Tobin and that too with a team-mate, who is supposedly her girlfriend! 

Dark Dating Life; Mystery Boyfriend Or Has Gay Relationship?

Tobin, who started playing soccer at the age of four, has barely any time to indulge in affairs and romantic relationships. The Jersey-born athlete has dedicated much of her time and energy in playing soccer.

During her break from soccer, she enjoys outdoor activities including tennis and surfing. These activities leave the footballer with very less time to focus on any relationships.

Even though Tobin was once rumored to be dating a man much younger than her, the identity of the mystery boyfriend was never revealed, and the rumors didn't prove to be true. 

The lack of active dating life and an existing boyfriend gave rise to a new rumor: "Tobin Heath is gay." The gossip wasn't solely confined to her sexuality. It also linked the Portland Thorns midfielder with one of her fellow footballer, Christen Press.

Gay Rumor With Christen Press; Is Christen Her Girlfriend?

Tobin, who joined the national football team in 2008, is romantically linked with her team-mate, Christen Press.

It was not Tobin herself who proclaimed her gay relationship, but her massive fan followers speculate that she has been dating Christen Press. But the two have not clearly stated about their romance.

Moreover, Tobin was out of the field for several months after suffering multiple injuries in September 2017. But she made her way back to the national team after returning to her full health in May 2018.

Co-incidentally, her rumored girlfriend, Christen Press also returned to the national team at nearly the same time as her after the U.S coach Jill Ellis had dropped her out of the team in March 2018.

Well, Tobin's gay rumors don't end in Christen Press, as in 2013 she had fueled her gayish nature to the social media followers after she asked her Valentine's day gift to another team-mate, Lindsey Horan.

Notably, hugging another team-mate after the victory or scoring goal does not make an individual gay as it is the way of sharing happiness. And same things could be related to the 30-year-old footballer, her hugging nature might be the reaction of the excitement of celebrating the victory, and about her valentine's day gift tweet, she might have asked her in a joking manner. 

Looking at these, while there is no concrete evidence to prove Tobin gay, some stereotypical people might have already labeled her as gay and trying to change their minds could be a futile effort.

Third World Cup Appearance

An athlete’s biggest dream is to represent her country in the world stage.

Tobin will get her third chance at world cup glory as United States coach Jill Ellis announced that she earned one of the esteemed sports in the US soccer team 2019. She will play in the forward position in the world stage.

Interestingly, she started five of the seven games for her country in 2015 and even managed to score in the championship win over Japan.

Aside from her rocking international career, Tobin is pretty much unstoppable in the national leagues. Playing for the Portland Thorns, she made a deadly combination with Caitlin Foord during NWSL in 2019. The athlete pair contribute with a goal and assist each and made dominant win against Orlando Pride with a score 2-0.
