If she can’t throw a hammer without throwing a tantrum the US should dump athlete Gwen Berry from their Olympic team

You won’t have heard of Gwen Berry. She is a hammer thrower and will be representing the United States at the Tokyo Olympics.
In a trials event in Oregon on Saturday (she finished third) she turned her back on national flag triggering off a political storm.
Mind you she has form in this area. Back in 2019 she raised a fist at the Pan Am games in Lima and Berry said it cost her $50,000 in sponsorship deals. Great news.

Anyway President Biden got caught up in the row. Instead of supporting the flag he defended Berry’s right to make a peaceful protest. He’s such a doddery old fool, an embarrassment to the world.
Berry, 31, is not there in an individual capacity. She is part of the national team.
In the opening ceremony she will march with other US athletes under the flag.
Could I suggest that if she doesn’t want to do that she should make way for somebody who will. There will be a queue.
PS If you plan to buy either car or home insurance I wonder if you might look at my small price comparison site A Spokesman Said as we earn a little commission from each sale which helps und the research and editorial costs of running the site. It has the same offer as the big ones like Go Compare. Thank you.
