Hope Solo Says She Has The ‘Fortitude’ To Become U.S. Soccer Federation President


The U.S Soccer Federation will soon select a new president, and Hope Solo thinks she’s the best woman for the job. One of the most decorated players in U.S. soccer history, Solo, 36, announced her run on Facebook.

“I know exactly what U.S. Soccer needs to do, I know exactly how to do it, and I possess the fortitude to get it done,” she wrote. “I have always been willing to sacrifice for what I believe in and I believe there is no greater sacrifice then fighting for equal opportunity, integrity and honesty, especially in an organization like the USSF that could give so much more to our communities across the nation.”

Solo earned two Olympic gold medals and three World Cup championships as a player.
