An old photo of Olympic hammer thrower Gwen Berry, who recently faced backlash for turning her back during the national anthem, has gone viral.

The image, which was unearthed on Wednesday, shows a seemingly patriotic Berry holding the American flag.

The photo is from Berry’s old personal website touting her accomplishments.

Though the blog post is dated June 12, 2015, it is not clear when the photo was taken.

In the light of the photo surfacing, many are questioning why Bery has shifted anti-American.

Berry doubled down on her claims the "racist" American national anthem "disrespects” black people and defended her decision to turn her back as the anthem played.

Berry justified her hate toward the national anthem by arguing it contains "racist" lyrics.

Berry told the Black News Channel:

“If you know your history, you know the full song of the National Anthem."

Earlier this week, Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) called for Berry to be removed from the U.S. Olympic team.

“We don’t need any more activist athletes. She should be removed from the team,” Crenshaw said.

"The entire point of the Olympic team is to represent the United States of America,” Crenshaw continued.

"That’s the entire point."
