2012's Most Enviable Olympic Bodies

Goalie for the U.S. Olympic Women's soccer team, Hope Solo, has been a fan favorite from early on in her career. And she solidified her place in America's hearts after shaking her stuff on the dance floor by making it into the finals on "Dancing with the Stars," earlier this year. Although she enjoyed the experience, soccer is still her true love and she dedicates all of her energy and time to focus on her sport.

Solo is currently at training camp, which she describes as 'very intense and non-stop.' She describes being a goalie like being in an entirely different sport than her teammates. And because of this, she focuses on speed and agility and lateral quickness instead of endurance.

As for her diet, Solo believes in eating the right foods and nutrients to maintain her strength and energy levels, and relies on protein especially after tough workouts. She also snacks healthy but keeps a balance by indulging in Thai food whenever she feels the need for that extra splurge.

Hope and the U.S. team won Olympic gold in 2008 in Beijing, and saw a near victory at last year's World Cup. She and her teammates are definitely hungry for a gold in this summer's games.
