Hope Solo: Pressure Makes Us: Recovery From Major Surgery

I'd be willing to bet that not many casual soccer fans out there know that American star goalie, Hope Solo, had major shoulder surgery last Fall to repair a totally detached labrum/biceps tendon.  Rehab took over five months, and then learning how to work through the pain of training and learning how to dive again took several weeks.  Diving to her right was the worst of all, and ironically, that amazing penalty kick save she made was a dive to the right.
