Hope Solo

Age: 31
Occupation: Soccer player

The goalkeeper for the U.S. women's soccer team, Solo captivated the nation at the 2011 World Cup with her athletic saves and aggressive attitude. Now, the fortunately named Solo is a cultural force: see, for example, her turn on Dancing with the Stars. At the London Olympics, Solo and her U.S. mates will be out to avenge their stunning World Cup loss to Japan and defend the gold they won at the Beijing Olympics.
