Country: United States
Best Finish: Gold (2008 Beijing)
We do love a good bad girl. Many of us didn't know who Hope Solo was until we heard her harshing on Briana Scurry at the 2007 World Cup. After the incident, she was banished from the team, only to come back stronger than ever at the 2008 Olympics, where she was a brick wall, leading the U.S. women to the gold. But her most badass moment? Showing up on the Today Show still drunk from the team's gold medal celebration.
