Hope Solo is Letting it All Hang Out

The goalie for the U.S. Women's National Soccer team and defending Olympic gold champions literally let it all hang out when she posed naked for an issue of ESPN's body issue. Now Hope Solo has decided that their should be no secrets either and is steadily airing all the dirty laundry she can (thank you!).

There is a reason why athletes like to say that what happens on the road stays on the road. The craziness that goes on is supposed to stay within the team. It--whatever it is--is meant to stay within the collective knowledge of those that were there. Hope already blew that for the women's soccer team when she admitted they were drunk on the Today show back in '08. Now she's blown it for everyone else as well.

According to her, a lot of Olympians let their freak flag fly after they are done with their event(s). To use her words and put it rather bluntly: There is a lot of sex going on. This isn't just meet at a bar and go back to my room kind of sex. No, that would be too simple. According to her people don't always bother finding a room:

I've seen people having sex right out in the open. On the grass, between buildings, people are getting down and dirty.

It's no wonder that officials ended up giving the residents of Olympic Village over 70,000 condoms in 2000 when the Games were in Sydney.

Should we really be surprised? Among the 10,000 or so athletes staying in the Village are some of the hottest bodies that the planet has ever seen. After ignoring their hormones for months while they train it's only natural to want to let the hormones take over. After all, its not everyday you can participate in the Olympics.
