Hope Solo Ruthlessly Jeered at Olympics
Sure, Richland legend Hope Solo has a bumpy past - but does the all-time great American Olympian deserve the treatment she's gotten at Rio?
Solo posted a picture of herself prepared to fend off mosquitoes (there has been a fear of a Zika outbreak in Brazil), which apparently set off locals at the games.
During the United States' win over New Zealand to kick off the games, fans joined in chants of "ZIKA!" when Solo would kick the ball.

Can't say I would blame a girl for not wanting to get Zika, but whatever...
