Hope Solo's Post-Olympics Drama Is So Bad Everyone Might Forget Ryan Lochte


The Women's USA Soccer team was beat out of a medal by Sweden at the Rio Olympics.

That was a pretty bad loss, but US goalie Hope Solo's drama is just making it a lot worse.

The 35-year-old has been suspended over her misconduct for six months, effective immediately.

Apparently, when it comes to friendly competition, saying "We lost to a bunch of cowards" in reference to the Swedish team is out of bounds.

You can't exactly unsay that, Solo!

In a statement, US Soccer president Sunil Gulati said,

Solo definitely has a history of getting fired up.

Swedish coach Pia Sundage dropped a truth bomb in response, in pure Sundage style,

Damn straight. Sundage previously coached Team USA to two Olympic gold medals.

Being bummed after a loss is certainly warranted, but dissing the opposing team like that doesn't make up for anything. It's not like you can have a rematch at the Olympics.

But Solo knows she's not great at losing. After the quote was released, she admitted she's bad at losing in this tweet.

This is a pretty embarrassing situation for the entire USA Women's soccer team.

I'm sorry, who is Ryan Lochte again?
