US Soccer isn't messing around when it comes to Hope Solo's unsportsmanlike conduct.

During the 2016 Olympics, the US Women's team lost to Sweden in the quarterfinals, when the 1-1 game went to penalty kicks.

After the Team USA's upset, the team's keeper called the Swedish sports stars "a bunch of cowards," and completely bashed their gameplay.

But now, it looks like the scandalized goalie is facing the consequences of her hurtful words.

On Wednesday, US Soccer announced they will be suspending the 35-year-old for six months — effective immediately — because her controversial comments were "counter to the organization's principles."

US Soccer President Sunil Gulati said in a statement:

Rihanna has a Sound of Music moment in Sweden.

Nonstop risk-taker!

Rihanna is so not afraid of wearing something that will get people talking, like this ruffled yellow floral dress she wore in Sweden Tuesday that was obviously made of the curtains from The Sound of Music.

RIHlated: RiRi Cancels Colombia Concert Over Zika Virus

Just like Fräulein Maria and the von Trapp kids, RiRi wore this outfit with pride and didn't even think anything was wrong with having clothing made from drapes.

We kid!!!

We love it when Rih takes risks, and even when she looks ridic, she still looks kinda cool?

Two Swedish Heroes Who Caught The Stanford Rapist Tell Their Side Of The Story

no title

Thank goodness for the quick-thinking actions of these two young men.

Carl-Fredrick Arndt and Peter Jonsson are the two Swedish-born graduate students at Stanford University who infamously spotted Brock Turner as he was sexually assaulting an unconscious woman behind a dumpster at one of the school's frat parties last year and held him until police arrived.

Turner, of course, was sentenced to a ridiculously light six-month prison term after being convicted of the horrifying deed — a sentence which sent shockwaves throughout the country and anger towards the judge responsible for not handing out a harsher penalty.

But now, we're starting to hear more about Arndt (above, left) and Jonsson (above, right), and how their quick thinking and heroic actions helped at least earn the conviction in the first place — because if not for them, it's very likely Turner would have walked away from the entire incident unscathed.

The two men — whom the victim refers to as 'heroes' in her moving statement that has since gone viral — were interviewed by Swedish newspaper Expressen and gave their reaction to the entire incident on Tuesday.

Arndt said (translated from Swedish, below) that the two came upon the scene while riding their bicycles home late that night:
