In a world of professional sport where standing out is deemed a risky business for your commercial prospects, we need to cherish those who speak their mind.
Hope Solo is one of those and we are excited beyond words to be bringing her to Dublin for One-Zero next month.
Mary Hannigan has done a great interview with her in this morning’s Irish Times making the point that you will rarely find a dull moment in Solo’s story.
She has plenty of great words of support for the Irish Women’s team who stood up for their rights earlier this year and also gives her views on Donald Trump and players kneeling for the National Anthem
On October 17th you will have a first ever opportunity in a Ireland to see Hope Solo up close and personal. She will be on stage, in one to one conversation to tell her story and inspire us with her life less ordinary. World Cup winner, equality advocate, body model, firebrand, there are many sides to Hope and every one of them stands out.
Frank Bruno and Paul Merson will also be on stage on the day as will Ireland’s possibly greatest ever sportsman Tony McCoy in conversation with Paddy Power.
It promises to be a day you will never forget.
