Earlier this month, memorial stories started running which honored the passing of the purported first Asian American Olympic gold medalist. Sammy Lee of California was revered for his feats in diving. When in fact, the first Asian American Olympic gold medalist was a Filipina American woman. From The Seattle Globalist.
Join us this Saturday, October 10th, 10:00 AM at Victoria Manalo Draves Park (Folsom & 7th) in San Francisco in commemoration of San Francisco native Victoria Manalo Draves, the first Asian-American olympian who won two gold medals back in 1948 for diving.
