youth athletes, our goal is to ensure clubs associated with KSYSA are the best prepared to
protect our children and allow our athletes to focus on soccer.” Kristyn Antunucci, founder of

This initiative is especially important because we have seen numerous cases of popular and
experienced coaches facing allegations of misconduct or predatory behavior. The vast majority
of influencers on our athletes have only the best intentions for growth and advancement in
soccer. Just one adult, crossing the line creates a tragic ripple effect throughout an organization
and families.

Ready for The Woke Olympics? US Olympian and BLM activist Turns Away from US flag on Podium

US Olympian and BLM activist turns away from US flag on podium…
Gwen Berry turns back to US flag during national anthem at Olympic trials,
says she was ‘set-up’

Hammer Thrower Gwen Berry Turns Away from Flag During Anthem

POLITICAL ANALYST AVAILABLE: Drew Allen is the host of “The Drew Allen Show” podcast. He is a Texas-bred, California-based millennial author, columnist, and political analyst. His work can be read and seen and heard at drewthomasallen.com

For the past week, they’ve played the national anthem one time a night at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials.

On Saturday, the song happened to start while outspoken activist Gwen Berry was standing on the podium after receiving her bronze medal in the hammer throw.

While the music played, Berry placed her left hand on her hip and shuffled her feet. She took a quarter turn, so she was facing the stands, not the flag. Toward the end, she plucked up her black T-shirt with the words “Activist Athlete” emblazoned on the front, and draped it over her head.

“I feel like it was a set-up, and they did it on purpose,” Berry said of the timing of the anthem. “I was pissed, to be honest.”

Berry’s reaction to the “Star-Spangled Banner” took its fair share of the spotlight on a blazing-hot second-to-last day at trials that also featured some blazing-fast times.

BIO: Fluent in Italian, Drew has lived and worked in Italy in the fashion industry and in New York City and Los Angeles as an actor, screenwriter, and independent film producer. He is a fresh, young, bold voice for the conservative movement.
