This year has been an unforgettable one in the US Soccer world. As we all know, the US Women’s National Team soared high and claimed the Women’s World Cup as their own for the third time in history. One of the major key players for the team’s success, was the lady standing in goal – Hope Solo.
Hope Solo celebrates her birthday on July 30th, so we thought we would do a quick highlight of her career for readers to enjoy just in time for the American icon’s birthday. Solo has contributed so much to the sport in our country, and this is just a small way to honor and thank her for everything.
Hope Solo played collegiately for The University of Washington, where she broke school records for most shutouts as well as saves. She began playing for the U.S. in 2000. During her professional career, Solo has become a two time Olympic Gold Medalist, FIFA Women’s World Cup Winner and Runner-up, and has won many other tournaments with the Women’s National Soccer Team. Hope was awarded the U.S. Soccer Female Athlete of the Year in 2009.

Most people can’t discuss the Women’s National Team without discussing Hope Solo and everything that she has contributed over the years. She has given the fans so many exciting and incredible moments, and I’m sure many more are to come. She is one of the most talented individuals I have ever seen play the game. There is no doubt that Hope Solo will go down as one of the greatest American Athletes of all time.
