May 27, 2012; Chester, PA, USA; USA goalkeeper Hope Solo (1) cradles the ball after making save against China during the second half of match at PPL Park. USA defeated China, 4-1. Mandatory Credit: Eric Hartline-US PRESSWIRETeam USA goalie Hope Solo is pretty amazing. If you've ever seen her play, you don't need me to tell you that.

Once again, however, Solo showed just how amazing she is in goal for the Americans, with an impressive save against Canada in a pre-Olympics warmup match.

Solo was moving to her right to make a save, when the ball was deflected by one of her Team USA teammates. She moved back to her left, diving to make the incredible save, and then had to dive again to make another save off the rebound.

If she keeps playing like this, you have to like the American medal hopes. The women's team won the gold in 1996, 2004 and 2008, and won silver in 2000.

She is the best goalie the USA have right now. Hopefully the women's team will come away with the gold once again.
