On June 23, 2008, it was announced Solo would be the starting goalkeeper for the U.S. team at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.

On August 21, the U.S. women’s team won the gold medal by defeating Brazil 1–0 in extra time in no small measure due to Solo’s outstanding performance as she stopped an energetic Brazil attack, making save after save.
