Whether it is taken by our own cameras or screen-captured off of the internet, the Overtime! Blog selects an “Image of the Week” to share with its readers.
This week’s image is a screen capture of Sports Illustrated Photos’ tumblr page.
The photo was taken in the aftermath of Team USA’s 2-1 victory over Japan in the Olympics Women’s Soccer Gold Medal Game. The ever-popular U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo is seen hugging team captain Christie Rampone, who is celebrating her third Olympic Gold. Rampone, who graduated from Monmouth in 1997 as Christie Pearce, has participated in four Olympics Games and was inducted into the NEC Hall of Fame as an inaugural member in 2010.
