Hope Solo Failed A Drug Test
Olympic goalkeeper and Tri-Cities, Washington's own Hope Solo failed a drug test when she was tested positive for Canrenone which is sometimes used to flush the system. What does this mean for Hope Solo and the 2012 Summer Olympics?
Fortunately, she had an excuse including a medical prescription so she received a warning that was made public. This means she will still represent us in the Olympics. Hope Solo had this to day.
"I took a medication prescribed by my personal doctor for pre-menstrual purposes that I did not know contained a diuretic. Once informed of this fact, I immediately cooperated with USADA and shared with them everything they needed to properly conclude that I made an honest mistake, and that the medication did not enhance my performance in any way. As someone who believes in clean sport, I am glad to have worked with USADA to resolve this matter and I look forward to representing my country at the 2012 Olympic Games in London."
