Defiant Gwen Berry says she’s “earned the right to wear this uniform” vows to “represent the oppressed people”

Olympic Hammer thrower Gwen Berry fired back against critics after advancing to the Olympic hammer final.

“I feel like I’ve earned the right to wear this uniform,” Berry said “I’ll represent the oppressed people. That’s been my message for the last three years.”

“I’m just focused on what I need to do,” Berry said. “Because all those people who hate me, they aren’t here. So, they can’t affect me.”

“My first goal is to win,” Berry also said. “My second goal is to do my best. And my third goal is to just to represent the oppressed people.

“That’s been my message for the past three years – just making sure I bring my message to the situations that are going on, around the world, and especially in America.”
