Olympic team USA’s Gwen Berry has announced that she plans to embarrass America on the World Stage if she wins a medal at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.
Berry, who made headlines after she turned her back on the American flag at the Olympic trials, says she is ready to stage a similar protest if she wins a medal at the Tokyo Olympics.
The Daily Wire reports:
Berry made it through qualifying rounds for the hammer throw over the weekend in the event’s Group B preliminaries, earning her the ability to compete in the women’s medal round on Tuesday.
Although Berry is not expected to make it to the medal podium — she would have to defeat not only her American teammate, Brooke Anderson, but world-leading hammer throwers from China and Poland — she said, in a post-qualifier interview Saturday, that she intends to make a political statement if she does.
