In Monday's finals, her first throw was as good as gold.

    I was so happy to get to know Stephanie when I wrote that first article about her for the Galt Herald last year. We will claim her as our hometown girl, even if she didn't grow up here, she is still from our 'home town'! I was in Nicaragua when I heard the news. Giving the glory to God...that's how you win..whether you win gold,or just live your life. Stephanie is a true example of a Christian living the way we were meant to. We are proud!

    The story on Stephanie the last couple days has really lifted my spirits. With all the political slugs that crawl from the rocks around here - being so close to the capitol - it's nice to see something so positive.Not only did she win for the U.S. womens division in 78 years, Miss Stephanie started the winning streak for the U.S. track and field in Beijing."On Monday, Brown Traftons first throw measured 212 feet, 5 inches. That held up as the winner, the United States ***first*** at these Games in track and field...Not long after, the Americans added to their total by finishing 1-2-3 in the mens 400 hurdles."http://sports.yahoo.com/olympics/beijing/track_field/news?slug=jo-browntrafton081808&prov=yhoo&type=lgnsLots of stories on this:http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&q=stephanie%20brown-trafton&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wn
