From being a contestant on Dancing With The Stars to participating in ESPN commercials–Hope Solo’s popularity level seems to be at an all-time high after becoming a fan favorite during the summer while the women’s soccer team displayed an impressive run during the World Cup. On top of all these accomplishments, Solo agreed to appear in this year’s ESPN the Magazine Body Issue and even thought the official release date is scheduled for October 7–some of the photos were leaked two days earlier online.
Above is a photo of the 30-year-old Solo watering the lawn for this year’s issue courtesy of ESPN.com. Solo admits that she used to be self-conscious about her body when she was younger, but that’s obviously no longer the case now that she’s in tip-top shape.
Other athletes appearing in this year’s issue include Alicia Sacramone, Steph Gilmore, and Blake Griffin.
