U.S. Swimmer Simone Manuel’s Emotional Reaction To Winning Gold, “All Glory To God”

With her impressive performance in the 100-meter freestyle Thursday night, Simone Manuel became the first black woman to win an Olympic gold medal in swimming. Congratulations! After the race she was interviewed and said this…

“All I can say is all glory to God, it’s definitely been a long journey these last four years,” she said before her voice began to break. “And I’m just so blessed to have a gold medal.”

“That’s something I definitely struggled with a lot,” she said. “Just coming into this race I kind of tried to take the weight of the black community off my shoulders, which is something I carry with me just being in this position. I do hope that kind of goes away.”
