Wings of Triumph – Sculptor Branko Medenica – Auburn University McWhorter Center for Women’s Athletics
International sculptor Branko Medenica created the Wings of Triumph statue that now stands outside the Center for Women’s Athletics at Auburn University. The statue was given by Earlon and Betty McWhorter, for whom the Center for Women’s Athletics is named.
“It stands for the past, present and future of female student athletes at Auburn University.”
Medenica said his inspiration in the famed ancient Greek statue at the Louvre Museum in Paris: Winged Victory of Samothrace.
Auburn University is the first university in the South to admit women, starting in 1892, and set a precedent in the world of female sports at the college level.
The statue does not represent just one athlete, it represents all female student-athletes who have paved the road for the future of Auburn athletics.
McWhorter Center for Women’s Athletics replaced the old Auburn Sports Arena. It is home to both the Auburn University gymnastics and softball facilities.
My daughter was lucky to attend gymnastics classes at this facility and she learned so much and had a wonderful time.
