US Vice President Kamala Harris made an appearance Saturday at a college football game in Washington, flipping the coin early in the game.
Wearing a dark blue suit and a black mask that barely concealed her wide smile, Harris tossed a coin to decide which team would start the match, which was played between two historically African American universities.
In the match, which was held at Audi Field in Washington, DC, a team from Howard University in the American capital and where Harris studied, and Hampton University, located in the homogeneous region of Virginia, participated.
The coin that Harris threw in his face landed, an option chosen by the Howard University team, who favored their opponent to start the match.
Later, Harris’ spokeswoman, Simone Sanders, posted on her Twitter account a picture of the used coin that read “Kamala Harris, 49th Vice President of the United States.”
Harris, who studied political science and economics at Howard University, is the first female vice president of the United States, and also the first African American and Asian to hold the position.
