At some period you have to express your feeling crazily or emotionally. No matter how it is expressed it is just for the best of it.
The 20-year-old swimmer became the first
African-American woman to ever win an individual medal in swimming for
the United States!
Simone won the gold medal in a rare
tie during the Women’s 100m Freestyle final that night. She tied with
Canada’s Penny Oleksiak.
“[This gold] is not just for
me it’s for a whole bunch of people who have come before me and have
been inspiration to me. It’s for [former relay gold medalist] Cullen
[Jones] and for all the people after me who believe they can’t do it. I
just want to be an inspiration to others to show that you can do it,”
Simone said in a post-race interview (via Fox Sports).More photos after
