Hope Solo is not taking any chances when she heads to Rio de Janiero.

The recent Zika virus outbreak has deterred some athletes from competing in the Olympics in August, but there are some athletes who’ll take precautions while competing. There are some though, like Solo, who’ll take extra precautions.

The Team USA women’s soccer goalie tweeted two pictures of how she’ll protect herself from any potential mosquito bites.

Hope those are Zika-proof.

If you happen to be in Brazil during the Olympics, you know who to go to if you run out of any bug repellant.
