Watch: Finally! Some Olympic Athletes We Can Be Proud Of, Refuse To Take The Bait From The Woke Media
United States wrestler Tamyra Mensah-Stock made history, she is the first black woman – and only the second woman – to win gold for Team USA wrestling.
Many athletes like Raven Saunders are focused on activism however, Mensah-Stock honored her country, thanked God, and her team.
“It’s by the grace of God that I’m able to even move my feet,” an enthused Mensah-Stock said after she took the gold. “I just leave it in his hands, and I pray that all the practice, all the hell my freaking coaches put me through, pays off, and every single time it does. And I get better and better. And it’s so weird that there is no cap to the limit that I can do. And I’m excited to see what I have next.”
A network reporter asked Mensah-Stock about the flag she had around her shoulders but she wouldn’t take the bait.
“It feels amazing,” Mensah-Stock said of competing for her country. “I love representing the U.S.,” she continued as she brought her hands up in the shape of a heart. “I freaking love living there, I love it, and I’m so happy I get to represent U-S-A,” she said.
The gold medal winning wrestler also said that she hopes she can be a role model for others.
“These young women are going to see themselves in a number of ways, and they’re gonna look up there and go. I can do that ’cause I can see myself,” Mensah-Stock said last week. “Look at this natural hair! Come on. I mean, sure, I brought my puff balls out so they can know you can do it, too.”

Sprinter Sydney McLaughlin also won gold and broke a world record in the 400 meter hurdles.
“Just trusting the process. Giving the glory to God. That’s all. This season, hard work and dedication and just really grateful to be able to represent my country and to have this opportunity,” she said.
American sprinter, Dalilah Muhammad was also on world record pace but finished just behind her teammate McLaughlin.
Iron sharpens iron.
