Jamie Gray won the Olympic Gold Medal in Women’s 3-Position Rifle and was welcomed home to Columbus, Georgia yesterday. The contrast to Jamie’s welcome home to the outrageous treatment afforded fellow shooter Corey Cogdell is remarkable.
Jamie is an assistant rifle coach for the rifle team at Columbus State University and they declared it Jamie Gray Day. The faculty welcomed her back with a standing ovation.
As an aside, it warms the heart to see a Pennsylvania native as a fellow Braves fan. During the interview with WRBL Channel 3’s anchor, she confessed to Chipper Jones being her favorite athlete and that she has always been a Braves fan despite the rest of her family being Phillies’ fans.
