Hope Solo DWTS Pics, Alex Morgan Talks Newfound Stardom

Share

U.S. Women’s soccer was the water cooler talk of the summer just like Michael Phelps was the trending topic of summer 2008. The World Cup runner-up squad became new media darlings. Especially true for the team’s best player Abby Wambach, and the two extremely photogenic athletes, Hope Solo and Alex Morgan.

Solo is doing ABC’s “Dancing with Stars.” See here new pics from the show after the jump.

“Everything right now is relatively new for me,” Morgan told the University at Buffalo’s student newspaper. “I’m not going to lie; the attention is a little weird and it’s different from what I’m used to, but I definitely want to bring attention to women’s soccer in the states. I’m going to help out women’s soccer as much as I can. I want to keep turning heads for women’s sports in the U.S. and in the world.”

Morgan has continued to perform well since the World Cup. She led the Western New York Flash to a 14-2-3 regular season record and helped them win the WPS championship last weekend. Plus, goals like the one she scored last month will help keep women’s soccer in the public’s consciousness.
