More history was added to the phrase on Thursday.
After winning the gold medal in the women’s pole vault final at the Tokyo Olympics, Katina Giotte from Olmsted Falls decided to find one of NBC’s TV cameras. The 30-year-old then sent a message home, repeating James’ famous phrase five years ago.
“Cleveland, this is for you,” emotional Nagiotte said in a clip that has been viral since then on social media.
Nagiotte’s victory was the result of a 4.9m jump early Thursday morning in Eastern Standard Time. A crowd of family and friends gathered at Fat Little Buddy’s Tavern in Olmsted Township to see the finals on Thursday. Her family told 3News that Nagiotte would meet and greet at 5 pm on Friday, August 13th.
