Gold Medalist Hope Solo Reveals Her 'Olympics Secret'


The buff and beautiful U.S. gold-medalist Hope Solo reveals the secrets of life among athletes in the Olympic Village, telling ESPN about a few key moments of the 2008 Beijing games that were not so solo at all.

Solo, who was the goalkeeper at Beijing 2008 and helped lead the U.S. team to a 1-0 victory over Brazil, told ESPN magazine that one night during the Beijing games she sneaked an unnamed celebrity back to her room in the Olympic Village, which was a major violation of the rules.

Solo calls this her "Olympics secret."

"When you mix great bodies with considerable confidence, and in some cases substantial wealth, you have a recipe for a very effective game," ESPN writer Sam Alipour told ABC News.

Solo, 30, also discussed the level of partying that some young athletes do while at the event, particularly after a big win. After the U.S. women's soccer team won the gold that year, Solo says she and her teammates went on an all-night bender with actor Vince Vaughn.

"When we were done partying, we got out of our nice dresses, got back into our stadium coats," at which point, she says, they went on live television, still drunk.

Solo even flubbed the interview, answering a question, "There is no pressure going into the game, other than it being a World Cup -- I mean an … an Olympic Final."

Here husband had tons and tons of talent as a football tight end (Univ of Wash. and Sea Seahawks).

Sadly he wasted it on lack of discipline, drugs and alcohol. Sad. Then he marries this ying yang (she's just as messed up as Jerramy). Train wreck !

I have a problem with the headline. Messi is a star. Ronaldo is a star. Suarez is a star. Muller is a star. Hope Solo is not a star. She could not get a game with Kidderminster Harriers in the Conference.

Did her sister take a fake dive and roll around on the ground ?

LOL! And grab her ankle/shin, grimacing as if someone had hit her leg with a sledgehammer?

You know, for some reason, I actually thought that 4 years on, maybe, just maybe, World Cup soccer (oops, I mean "football" - no, I mean freaking SOCCER!) would be less annoying than it was in 2010. Well, to be fair, it IS much less annoying without those bloody zuzuvalas (or whatever they were called), but the drama-queen leg grabbing and rolling around are just ridiculous.

I think they should get some NHL refs to work soccer games for a while, and start penalizing them for diving and faking fouls, until those p*ssies stop whining like babies and flopping around like beached fish all the time. And they wonder why soccer doesn't catch on in the US? Maybe it's got something to do with the fact that we don't like poor sportsmanship, and there's no other word to describe the way those players try to draw fouls constantly.

God I hate soccer, almost as much as I hate the fact that I STILL watch it because the scoring plays can be so great to watch.

I know I'm doing amazing things for female athletes.

Presenting female athletes as promiscuous drunks whose real ambition is to be bikini models is not "amazing."
