Hope Solo - Hope Solo Leaves Dwts

Hope Solo was voted out of 'Dancing with the Stars' last night (15.11.11).

The 30-year-old soccer player - who has been beset with injuries during the ballroom series - described the competition as one of the hardest challenges she has ever undertook, and then vowed to focus her attention on the London Olympics in 2012.

She said: "This competition is one of the toughest competitions I've ever been a part of. Instead of trying to win a mirror-ball trophy, I'm going to try to win a gold medal this summer at the Olympics."

Her professional partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy then added: "I'm sorry, I wish I could have done better for you. But it is what it is."

Backstage, fellow competitor Ricki Lake - who will be joined in the final by Rob Kardashian and J.R. Martinez - congratulated Hope, and revealed she had taught her to appreciate soccer.

She said: "I love them. They were on my team paso and we did so well at that. I think they're both great people. I think she did great. She came so far and I now like soccer! I never knew anything about it, but now I'm rooting for my goalie Hope Solo!"

Rob also admitted he was stunned to have made it through to next week's final.

He said: "I never would have imagined this when I signed up for this, never in a million years.

"I really just gotta bring it more than ever and that mirror-ball trophy is right at the end of my fingertips."
