After her court appearance, Solo posted a statement on Instagram.
Im slowly returning from maternity leave after a long journey. She writes that I am incredibly proud of myself in motherhood and what my husband and I have done day in and day out throughout the epidemic with two-year-old twins.
Despite my pride, it was incredibly difficult to do so, and I made a huge error. It was easily the worst mistake of my life. She continued to tell me how destructive my life had become.
Solo continued to thank her husband and her pals for their help during this difficult time in her life. She thanked her lawyers.
The advantage of making a mistake that big is that difficult lessons are learned quickly. She wrote that learning these lessons has been difficult and at times, quite painful.
With her kids, the two-time Olympic gold medalist celebrated her 41st birthday on July 30, 2022.
Solo captioned a photo with her children playing on a beach as she is 41 years old.
