U.S. wrestler Tamyra Mensah-Stock was asked a simple question by a reporter after she won gold at the Tokyo Olympics in the 68kg final over Blessing Oborududu of Nigeria. “How does it feel to represent your country like this,” Mensah-Stock was asked.
“I love representing the U.S. I freaking love living there,” the Olympic gold medalist said before pumping her fist, smiling, and pulling the stars and stripes tighter to her body.
Mensah-Stock, who began wrestling in the 10th grade in Katy, Texas after being prodded by her sister said that she didn’t have role models to look up to early in her career, but she always had her sister to fall back on.
