Woman Of Gold

Largo is the city was born and raised in. I went to Anona Elementary, Largo Middle, and Largo High in the 70s and 80s. I always believed in the greatness of my hometown.

I always thought one day we’d have someone from our city in the Olympics – and that someone would win a Gold medal from here.

Yesterday, that day came as Ana Zolotic won in the featherweight Taeknowdo tournament. Going back to my era, there were always classes teaching that martial art.

Ana became the first woman ever to win Gold in that sport for the United States.

Great day for the sport, perhaps a greater day for Largo.
