Not only did she win, Simone set AN OLYMPIC RECORD! How about that!

She was also is the first black woman to win a medal in an individual swimming competition!

Manuel gave  a humble, gracious & inspiring comments after she swam.

“All I can say is all glory to God. I’m so blessed,” she said.

Twitter exploded for her! We were all so incredibly proud.

This is #BlackGirlMagic at it finest. Simone Manuel is literal goals. Between her and Simone B. & Gabby, this is overload (but not really)! Congratulations!
