Hope Solo, one of the stars of last season’s Dancing with the Stars , and Alex Morgan, featured in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue released this week, were at Ohio State University Thursday night to speak to students about their “other” lives as members of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team.
Solo is the starting goalkeeper and Morgan is a speedy forward for the team that finished second to Japan in last summer’s World Cup. Since then, they have been perhaps the two most visible players in off-the-field media appearances.
Both were in Columbus last May to play in an international friendly match against Japan in advance of World Cup play.
On this visit, the pair attracted a sold-out audience in the Ohio Union. Sitting onstage in chairs, they were interviewed by Ohio State women’s soccer head coach Lori Walker and talked about their training for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
Ashleigh Ignelzi of TheCrew.com caught up with Morgan and Solo before the event for this video interview.
