Olympic Hammer Thrower Gwen Berry Turns Away From Flag as Anthem Plays at U.S. Olympic Trials

Olympic hammer thrower Gwen Berry claims that she was “set up” after turning away from the flag at the conclusion of the U.S. track and field qualification trials. Berry, who was reprimanded for protesting at the Pan-American Games in 2019, was in Eugene, Oregon this weekend for the trial competition, where she placed in third behind Brooke Andersen and DeAnna Price. Price made headlines for setting a record-breaking throw of 263 feet, 6 inches, according to ESPN.

Gaslighting at it’s finest. If Berry really hated being American she would’ve left the country a long time ago. But she doesn’t have the courage and she knows opportunities like the one’s available here aren’t available anywhere else.
