TOKYO (AP) — Outspoken hammer thrower Gwen Berry was as proud as any of the 600 American Olympians to be donning the red, white and blue uniform with the letters “USA” emblazoned across the chest.

She says she’s fought through a lot to earn the right to wear the uniform. Berry says she’d be even happier to be wearing the “Team USA” gear while her national anthem plays a few nights from now.

Berry promised she would do what she’s been doing if the spotlight shines her way on the medals stand. She says she’ll represent oppressed people.
