The excitement is building for the 2012 CONCACAF Women's Olympic Qualifying Tournament and the Canadian Soccer Association has been busy promoting the eight-team competition. The CSA is featuring two U.S. players with strong northwest ties -- Seattle resident Hope Solo and former Portland Pilot star Megan Rapinoe -- as part of an advertising campaign titled "Made for This." Below you see the poster with a pic of the Megan Rapinoe of today along with an inset of a young Megan as a youth player and the caption "Made for This - Training Since 1980" which is when she started player soccer at the age of 5. Very cute. We'll put up Hope Solo's ad in the coming days. If you are planning on heading up to Vancouver, or just decided RIGHT NOW that you have to go, go to Ticketmaster.ca for all the info.
