2008 Gold Medalist Visits RETC
The Roseville Express Track Club (RETC) had the pleasure of meeting with the 2008 Beijing Olympic Gold Medalist in the women’s discus, Stephanie Brown-Trafton. Stephanie was in the area on business and was able to carve out time for a meet and greet with these aspiring youth athletes. She shared her story about what her life was like growing up trying many different sports with a focus that was actually on basketball.
Although our time together was short, she was able to bring out her gold medal for the athletes to hold, take pictures and sign autographs. It was a lovely time of Q & A between Stephanie and the athletes and RETC wishes her the greatest of success as she continues her training in her quest to break the American discus record.
