Star U.S. soccer goalie Hope Solo failed a drug test recently, but was let off with a warning after claiming she had no idea a prescription drug she took for "pre-menstrual purposes" contained a diuretic on the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency's prohibited list.
She will be eligible to compete in the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
"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 the medication did not enhance my performance in any way," Solo said.
A sample of Solo's urine collected June 15 tested positive for canrenone, a prohibited diuretic. But when Hope's prescribed medication was found to contain canrenone in therapeutic doses, she was given a public warning, not a suspension.
"As someone who believes in clean sport, I'm 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," the Dancing With the Stars alum said.
Solo is one of 14 American athletes to receive a sanction under United States Olympic Committee's anti-doping policies this year, according to the USADA.
She is one of only three athletes to avoid suspension as a result.
