Many expect Hope Solo and the American women to strong-arm the Olympic competition at this year’s Summer Games in London. They failed to win the World Cup in Frankfurt, Germany, and the United States is motivated to win gold. So far, so good: They’re 1-0 with a 4-2 win over France on Tuesday in Glasgow, Scotland.

The women’s soccer calendar allows for such quick make-goods, with the Olympics always coming one year after the World Cup. The Americans have mastered the avenger routine at the last two Summer Games, taking gold in 2004 and 2008 after slip-ups at the World Cups of 2003 and 2007. It’s an interesting note that no country – not even the U.S. – ever has won the World Cup-Olympics double.
