Would Gwen Berry turn her back on this Tampa National Anthem singer?

Stanley Cup National Anthem
Ret. Air Force Sgt. Sonya Bryson-Kirksey sings National Anthem at 2021 Stanley Cup in Tampa.

Sonya Bryson-Kirksey sang both the Canadian and American National Anthems Monday night before game one of the 2021 Stanley Cup Finals in Tampa.
The retired U.S. Air Force technical sergeant belted out a beautiful version to kick off hockey’s biggest night…as the packed arena sang with her.

It is obvious that Bryson-Kirksey is proud of her country, unlike Olympic hammer thrower Gwen Berry, who turned her back to the American flag as the anthem played as she stood on the medals podium accepting the bronze and a trip to Tokyo representing the United States…the very country she hates.

Would Berry turn her back on Bryson-Kirksey as she sang the National Anthem and will she disrespect the American flag again if she wins gold in Tokyo. It will be her second Olympics.
Berry has been outspoken about racial injustice in the United States and says the anthem doesn’t speak for her.

The Tampa Bay Lightning took the lead in the Stanley Cup Final after scoring three third period goals on their way to a 5-1 victory in Game One over the Montreal Canadiens.
