Hope Solo Controversy:
- In a 2012 Hope Solo was interview on CNN. During the interview,on the Piers Morgan Show she spoke about and defended her “public image.” Solo spoke about her public image and said “I have a bad rap,” she said. “People look at me as selfish, outspoken. But I know who I am.” She added, “I don’t expect any of the media to be positive. But I know that I’m doing wonderful things for the sport of soccer and I know I’m doing amazing things for female athletes. So I can take it.”
- That same year, Solo sent out a harsh tweet criticizing Olympic soccer commentator Brandi Chastain for her negative commentary during the 2012 London games. After the 2007 FIFA Women’s World Cup, Solo openly criticized U.S. women’s soccer coach Greg Ryan.
- In 2012 U.S. Anti-Doping Agency publicly warned Solo after she tested positive for a banned diuretic — a substance she claimed she didn’t know was in premenstrual medication prescribed by her physician. The agency accepted Solo’s explanation and she competed in the 2012 Olympics.

Amy Purdy began snowboarding at age 15, but in 1999, she contracted bacterial meningitis at the age of 19 and had less than a 2 percent chance of living. She was able to survive the infection, but lost both of her legs below the knee and would later require a kidney from her father the week before her 21st birthday. Purdy longed to return to snowboarding, and when she couldn’t find prosthetics that would work for snowboarding, she built her own. In 2005 she co-founded Adaptive Action Sports, a non-profit organization and branch of Disabled Sports USA that is dedicated to introducing people with physical challenges to action sports. She was instrumental in advocating for the inclusion of adaptive snowboarding to the 2014 Paralympic Games.
