To all the gatekeepers; the dedicated women who turned pro when thoughts of being an Olympian, or even earning a living from their sport seemed impossible… the beautiful women, the true talents, the amazing athletes who drove the path to a door that was bolted shut by prejudice and ignorance — these medals belong to you! To all those who came before who paved it, carved it and earned it.. fighting with the spirit of an amateur and beating only the odds. Thank you for making the victory of a few serve as the glory of the many. To the future! Joe Dwyer and the NABF Salute you!
