After winning her bronze medal on 11th August, I was remembered of "Human Rights salute at the 1968 Olympics" when the African American athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos; the athletes had raised their fist for their right at Olympic Stadium in Mexico City. While seeing her standing on the medal stage, there's some sort of unknown hope was bouncing in my heart. But then the medal was given and nothing happened. History didn't repeat, neither my hope turned alive. But there's still a proud inside of me for her achievement. And of course today, I am very happy after going through JOHN LEICESTER's article in AP, in which, it's mentioned, ''I'm extremely honored to take part as the first representative of the Tibetans at the Olympic Games and to win a medal,'' she said. Though she has represented under that red flag, I could feel the proud inside of her for being a Tibetan. Vive le Tibet! and Vive le mon peuple..!
