Congratulations to this talented Olympian! 👏👏👏
Olympian Tamyra Mensah-Stock made history on Aug. 3 as the first black female to win a gold medal in wrestling. She is now the number-one female wrestler in the world! 😱
After winning the women’s freestyle 68kg wrestling final, she said “it’s by the grace of God I’m able to even move my feet. I just leave it in His hands.”
The 28-year-old Olympian added how much it amazes her that “there is no cap to the limit that I can do.”

In another interview, the gold medalist said she “100 percent knew she could do it.”
“I knew it would be hard. I prayed I could do it. In my wildest dreams, I knew I could do it.”
Mensah-Stock also expressed in a Feb. 2021 Instagram post that she hopes she inspires others in doing “all things through Christ.”
Here’s her post below:
The post reads, “I love who I am and who I am becoming. I hope that I can reach the hearts and minds of many with my story and show them that you can do all things through Christ! I am a #proudblackwoman ready to encourage the world. 🌎 #Godbless”.
What an beautiful example! 😇
