Hammer thrower Olympian Gwen Berry finished in eleventh of
twelve competitors Tuesday with a distance of 71.35 meters.
Despite making near-daily headlines, Gwen Berry will not take
home Olympic gold, silver, or bronze. Competing amongst a dozen
hammer throwers in the August 3rd finals, Berry’s 71.35 meter
distance would land her in eleventh place.
Yet the 32-year-old athlete has been at the forefront of the
2020 Tokyo Olympics this summer. In the time since protesting
the American flag & anthem during the Olympic trials medal
ceremony in June, where she won bronze, Berry has stood by the
“Activist Athlete” shirt she originally held up in protest.
That is one ugly black bitch.
