An Olympic athlete is going viral on social media for her emotional reaction after winning a gold medal Tuesday.
Tamyra Mensah-Stock, who started wrestling after being bullied in high school, took gold in the women’s 68 kg final against Blessing Oborududu of Nigeria on Aug. 3.
“Of course I surprise myself. It’s by the grace of God I’m even able to move my feet,” Mensah-Stock, 28 from Katy, Texas, told NBC afterward.
“Like I just leave it in His hands, and I pray that all the practice, that all the hell that my freaking coaches put me through pays off, and every single time it does,” she said, adding she has no limits.
