Stephanie Brown-Trafton won the first Olympic Gold in women’s discus since 1932. That’s right, it has been 76 years. Many lives have come and gone in the time the US waited for this event.
Stephanie said, “I came to the Bird’s Nest to lay a golden egg, and that’s what I did. It’s an awesome feeling. I knew I had the potential for a medal at these Games.”
“I’m just happy my first throw was the gold-medal throw. It’s an awesome feeling. I knew I was going to medal, then I got the gold medal.”
