20yrs old Simone Manuel, has made history for the US, setting a new Olympic record in the 100-m freestyle and becoming the first black woman to win an individual swimming gold.

She is also the first American to win the 100m freestyle since the 1984 Olympics. After her race, the teary-eyed Stanford University student, said:
"This medal is not just for me, it's for a whole bunch of people who have come before me and have been an inspiration to me. And it's for all the people after me who believe you can't do it." 




"I just want to be an inspiration to others that you can do it," she added emotionally as she basked in the glory of victory.
