US Olympian Gwen Berry became international news at the Olympic trials in June when she decided to trash America and turn her back on the flag as the national anthem played. During an interview, Berry said she was “pissed” when the anthem came on. She clearly has nothing but disdain for the United States, a country she is supposed to “represent”.
Well, lucky for her, she won’t need to worry about representing our country any longer and the reason is simple:
She put on a God-awful display at the Tokyo Olympics and she officially qualified for ZERO medals.
Here’s the scoop from the NY 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.
In July, before the Olympics commenced, Berry pledged to “represent the oppressed people” should she win a medal in Tokyo, adding, “that’s been my message for the last three years.”
Yes, you read that right. She finished 11th out of 12th. And because of that, the LAST thing she needs to worry about now is who to ‘represent’. In fact, it appears the only thing she needs to worry about is booking her flight home while the true champions celebrate.
