The United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee said it was considering disciplinary action for two athletes who decided to demonstrate against injustice during the national anthem.

Fencer,🤺Race Imboden and hammer thrower, Gwen Berry both used the medal ceremony to call for ‘change’ and highlight ‘injustice’ in the US.

Mr Imboden tweeted after the event. “This week I am honoured to represent Team USA at the Pan Am Games, taking home Gold and Bronze. My pride however has been cut short by the multiple shortcomings of the country I hold so dear to my heart.
