She's an international soccer star, an Olympic gold medalist and Maksim Chmerkovskiy's dream partner on Dancing with the Stars.
Just don't call her sexy.
"I still don't buy the idea that I'm a sex symbol," Solo, 30, tells the annual ESPN Body Issue, in which she and a slew of other top athletes pose nude.

What's in a name? For Team Drickilous, hopefully fancy footwork skills to go along with their fun attitude!
Dancing with the Stars contestant Ricki Lake and her partner Derek Hough have unveiled their team name for the season, and it's "Drickilous."
Though the former talk show host has been using "Drickilous" as a tag on her Twitter page recently, she and Hough officially introduced the name in a video posted on her Facebook page Thursday. A giggly Lake, 42, and a deadpan Hough, 26, explain that they combined his first initial and her name to create the new moniker, pronounced "Dee-riculous."

Cheryl Burke and her fellow Dancing with the Stars castmate Maksim Chmerkovskiy are very close. But they’re not dating, Burke says – despite rumors of romance.
The pro dancers were spotted getting cozy in Las Vegas recently, where they visited with other friends. But looks can be deceiving.
"We have a good time," Burke, 27, told PEOPLE while celebrating her belated birthday at Palazzo Las Vegas's Azure Luxury Pool. "We've known each other since we were kids. We have that brother and sister relationship."

Fat Actress? Not Kirstie Alley!
All the Dancing with the Stars finalist, 60, can do is rave about her post-ballroom body.
"We're doing our dance tomorrow, and you have to wear the costume you wore [during] the first dance that you did," Alley told PEOPLE backstage after Monday night's show. "We had to take a lot of inches out of that costume, which was fun."

The word "instant" usually sounds promising. Instant messenger, instant replay, instant rice. However, instant dance? Doesn't have the same ring to it.
This week we have the infamous instant dance, where we learn choreography, but won't know the song we'll be sweating to until minutes before we perform live on Monday. In a way, the instant dance sounds like an oxymoron considering it feels like we learn every dance almost instantly. As I write, Team Kanenball is two days into learning two very unrelated routines.
Dance Uno: The Slow Waltz. A refined and romantic dance to a stunning song.
Dance Dos, the instant Salsa, which sounds delicious, but doesn't come with a margarita.

Seems glitzy dance costumes have long been a part of Kendra Wilkinson's life.
The Dancing with the Stars contestant posted a photo of her younger, blue Spandex-sporting self on her Web site Monday, writing that she "stumbled upon these old school pics from when i took dance when i was little."
She adds: "How funny are they?!?? I guess i have more experience than i thought i did lolol."

Are they or aren't they dating?
Pia Toscano recently opened up about her fondness for "sweet and extremely supportive" Mark Ballas, who took her out on a date last week.
But how does Ballas feel about the eliminated American Idol contestant?

Derek Hough is not competing on season 12 of Dancing with the Stars, but he's already planning his return to the dance floor.
"I told the told the producers I'm going to come back with a few new tricks," the dancer-choreographer said, anticipating that he'll return to the ballroom this fall.
During his break from the show, Hough, 25, will film a movie called Cobu 3D, which is forcing him into a role that he's pretty unfamiliar with.
