Hope Solo gets warning from USADA after drug test

(AP) COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - U.S. national team goalkeeper Hope Solo received a public warning Monday from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency on Monday after she tested positive for the banned substance Canrenone in a urine test.

Solo has accepted the warning and will still play for the United States in the Olympic tournament.

The 30-year-old Solo tested positive for Canrenone in a test on June 15.

"I took a medication prescribed by my personal doctor for pre-menstrual purposes that I did not know contained a diuretic," Solo said in a statement. "Once informed of this fact, I immediately cooperated with USADA and shared with them everything they needed to properly conclude that I made an honest mistake, and that the medication did not enhance my performance in any way."

Canrenone is classified as a specified substance, so its presence in an athlete's sample can result in a reduced sanction.

"As someone who believes in clean sport, I am glad to have worked with USADA to resolve this matter and I look forward to representing my country at the 2012 Olympic Games in London," she said.
