The U.S. women’s soccer team, led by liberal icon Megan Rapinoe, will play for the bronze after losing to Canada, and Olympic hammer thrower Gwen Berry, who turned away from the flag during an Olympic trials medal ceremony in June, failed to medal – finishing 11th out of 12.
While Olympic wrestler Tamyra Mensah-Stock made Americans proud yesterday with both her historic gold medal-winning performance in Tokyo and the patriotic speech she gave with the American flag draped around her shoulders, “woke” Olympians like the U.S. women’s soccer team and hammer thrower Gwen Berry have not fared too well during the Olympic games.
As we previously reported, not only did the women’s soccer team, led by liberal icon/media darling Megan Rapinoe, lose the first game they played in the Olympics, going down to Sweden 3-0 in an embarrassing loss after kneeling during the national anthem, but they also lost to Canada earlier this week for the first time in over 20 years. Instead of playing for the gold medal, they’ll now play Australia for the bronze.
It was a rather spectacular fall for the U.S. team, who were heavily favored to win it all going into the games.
You’ll recall that hammer thrower Gwen Berry turned away from the American flag as the Star-Spangled Banner played during an Olympic trials medal ceremony back in June where she’d won the bronze medal. She later threw a temper tantrum over the incident, calling it a “setup,” and saying her purpose in going to the Olympic games was to “represent those… who died due to systemic racism.”

It was later revealed via a tweet search that Ms. Berry has shown hostility towards other races.
Unfortunately for Berry, going woke and pledging to be an activist athlete as the ceremonies started didn’t help her during her Olympic event. Not only did she fail to medal, but she finished an embarrassing 11th out of 12 after entering the Olympic stadium raising her fist twice:
So it came as absolutely no surprise that U.S. hammer thrower Gwen Berry entered the Olympic Stadium Tuesday night by raising her right fist not once but twice, several seconds apart, to announce that she of all people would be taking advantage of the International Olympic Committee’s relaxed rules allowing freedom of speech prior to the start of play.
“It was the same thing,” she said of her gesture after finishing well off the podium and out of the medals in 11th place out of 12 competitors, “social injustice, racial injustice, I’m just here to represent. I know a lot of people like me, a lot of athletes like me, a lot of people are scared to succeed, a lot of people scared to speak out. So as long as I can represent those people, I’m fine.”

Because these athletes are not just representing a sport but their country when they go to the Olympics to compete, it’s not too surprising to see people cheering when the wokesters go down in defeat:
Shout out to self-proclaimed "activist athlete" @MzBerryThrows for coming in 11th place and failing to win a medal at the Olympics after turning her back on the American flag during qualifying in June! Well deserved! pic.twitter.com/U1ZbWqvNPS

Gwen Berry was so offended by Trump's "America First" message that she made sure she got NOWHERE NEAR first place.
Kudos to her for staying consistent https://t.co/rWcJNhyCAg

Gwen Berry won't have to worry about the National Anthem from the podium, because she failed to medal at all. https://t.co/aNHIXtWXmz

RT if you enjoy seeing the US Women's Soccer Team lose!

Americans are under no obligation to cheer for a women's soccer team that hates America.

For the 2nd Olympics in a row now the most famous lauded and absolutely insufferable US women’s soccer team is booted out of gold medal games. Maybe it’s time for new leadership on the team.

The US has become polarized beyond belief. Around the world, sports and football in particular have the ability to unite entire nations.
Today, many Americans are actually *happy* to see the US women’s soccer team lose out on a gold medal.
What a sign of the times. pic.twitter.com/agUDWiN7eU

This Twitter user perhaps summed things up best by pointing out how losing focus can be a recipe for disaster in all things, especially sports:
Great sports teams require focus and team unity, all towards a goal.
Distractions, even minor, can cause you to not be as ready as lesser opponents
The U.S. women's soccer team didn't lose because they weren't the best. They lost because they brought distractions on themselves pic.twitter.com/9fJnMxqzIn

Hard to argue with that.
