Olympics – Hope Solo Is Suspended

Posted on August 25, 2016 in Professional Sports News.

Officials at U.S. Soccer confirmed in a statement last night that team USA goalkeeper Hope Solo has been suspended for six months for her comments after the U.S. lost to Sweden in the women’s semi-finals of the Olympics.

After the game, Solo called the Swedish team ‘a bunch of cowards’ for their style of play…..comments which U.S. officials called ‘unacceptable’.
