U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo tests positive for banned substance, will still play in Olympics

U.S. Women’s National Team goalkeeper Hope Solo received a public warning on Monday from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency after she tested positive for the banned substance Canrenone in a urine test.

Solo has accepted the warning and will still play for the United States in the Olympic tournament. The 30-year-old starting goalkeeper tested positive for Canrenone in a test conducted on June 15.

“I took a medication prescribed by my personal doctor for pre-menstrual purposes that I did not know contained a diuretic,” Solo said in a statement. “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.”
