It's more to do with the fact that Katie was a dominant champ but didn't get the recognition she deserved in her own country. The Olympics shed a light on her so people are much more aware of her now.

Those photographs are actually quite stunning. Holy shit! lol

Now that is pride and support! To see that many people turn up for a local girl in a fledgling Olympic sport is utterly amazing. Did Katie have any Cuban coaches? lol
