Hope Solo of the U.S. soccer team says that the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing were filled with drinking, revelry and sex … off the field of course.
Before she packs her bags to head to London for the 2012 Olympics next week, the star revealed some sizzling secrets from the 2008 Beijing games.
Solo failed a drug test recently but was let off with a warning and will compete in London. She told the newest issue of ESPN The Magazine:
After topping Brazil 1-0 to take the gold, the post-match celebration was so raucous that they were still drunk during an interview the next morning.
“When we were done partying, we got out of our nice dresses, got back into our stadium coats and, with no sleep, went on the Today show drunk,” she says.
Still inebriated, she answered a question: “There is no pressure going into the game, other than it being a World Cup – I mean an … an Olympic Final!”
It wasn’t just sports stars who enjoyed a night on the town in the Chinese city, as the soccer team was joined on their all-night bender by Vince Vaughn.
She calls this her “Olympic secret.”
“There’s a lot of sex going on!” Hope revealed. “Unlike at a bar, it’s not awkward to strike up a conversation because you have something in common.”
However, “If you don’t have discipline, the village can be a huge distraction,” she warned … hopefully not for her. Somehow we think she can handle it.
