Team WSF Takes London By Storm in Week One of the Olympic Games
In 2009, Kayla Harrison received a grant from the Women's Sports Foundation's
Rusty Kanokogi Fund for the Advancement of U.S. Judo.
Three years later in London, she became the first American to ever win
Judo gold. Our financial assistance allowed Kayla to fully commit to her
training, helping her become the best
in the world.
Congratulations Kayla, we are so proud to be a part of your gold medal moment!
Kayla is joined on TEAM USA by 30 women who received financial
assistance through the Women’s Sports Foundation’s grant programs,
grantee Christina Loukas,
