FIFA.com has posted a short interview article with USWNT goalkeeper Hope Solo. I found this excerpt noteworthy:
“Our training camp last December was a key point for me. Fifteen months after my operation [in September 2010] I began with my preparations for the Olympic Games. I’m learning to use my shoulder in a different way. No more drugs, less pain. My movements are different now. It’s about getting to know my body again in the hope of being in a stronger position heading into the Olympics than I was for the World Cup.”
Just something to keep in mind when evaluating and comparing her performance.
