Sports / Shadiest moments of the Rio Olympics / Hope Solo is a sore loser

Although she's no stranger to controversy, Hope Solo found herself embroiled in yet another international incident when she forgot her manners following the U.S. women's soccer team's loss to Sweden. Goalkeeper Solo described the Swedish team as "a bunch of cowards" after the game and criticized their use of a defensive strategy during the match. Outrage by fans, coaches, and the other athletes soon followed. If it hadn't been for Ryan Lochte's cry-wolf incident, Solo's thoughtless words might have been the biggest U.S. embarrassment of the Rio games. Solo definitely paid the price for her loud mouth—the U.S. Women's National Team terminated her contract in August 2016 and banned her for six months.
