Play silly games, win silly prizes. Well, in this case, don’t win any prize because you’re actually not a world-class athlete after all. Wah wah!
Don’t feel bad for Gwen Berry for not medaling at the 2020 Summer Olympics, however. Though she represents America as a hammer-thrower, the woman is not proud of her country. In other words, she never should’ve worn the Stars and Stripes in the first place (HAHA, first place).
It’s unfortunate that far too many people these days, like Gwen Berry and USWNT star Megan Rapinoe, don’t realize how good they have it in the U.S.
Check this out, via New York Post:
Gwen Berry failed to medal during the women’s hammer throw finals on Tuesday. Berry finished in eleventh place out of twelve competitors, registering a distance of 71.35 meters.
The 32-year-old caused a stir during the medal ceremony at the Olympic trials in June. After winning a bronze medal during the event, Berry faced the stands rather than the American flag, holding up a shirt that read “Activist Athlete.”
Afterward, Berry said she was “pissed” that “The Star-Spangled Banner” played during the celebration.
“If you know your history, you know the full song of the national anthem,” Berry said on Black News Channel. “The third paragraph speaks to slaves in America — our blood being slain … all over the floor.”
All Americans had your back in Tokyo, Gwen, until you turned yours on the flag – and us. Not cool, man.
