Rio Olympics 2016 Soccer Games Live Stream, Results & How To Watch: American Goalkeeper Hope Solo Gets Booed
Hope Solo, the American soccer goalkeeper, has already messed up feathers at the Rio 2016 Olympics.
The U.S. national women's soccer team goalkeeper, who is a two-time Olympic gold medalist and a World Cup gold medalist, has been outspoken in her criticism about how the Brazilian government is addressing Zika. Solo recently tweeted an image of herself wearing mosquito netting and another with dozens of packs of mosquito repellent she planned to bring to Rio and Solo hashtag her Twitter post with #zikaproof.
The American women's soccer goalkeeper also told the media that she would attend the Rio Olympics 2016 begrudgingly and Solo considered not to leave the Olympic Village except for the soccer games and practices, according to The Daily Beast.
Back in May, Solo stated that she's not sure if she's going to be leaving the hotel room, outside of practice.
Recently, the 35 year old professional soccer player offered a semi apology to the Brazilian people before Team USA's first game at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Solo blamed the American media for spreading an unpleasant emotion about Zika virus and being really resilient on the people of Brazil. Solo went on to say that she thinks that they have been very hard on the local people of Brazil.
However, Solo's justification for her tweets on July was not enough. Every time the two-time Olympic gold medalist touched the soccer ball during the American's match with New Zealand, the American goalkeeper was met with boos and "Zika" chants.
