Simone Manuel

Within days of her twentieth birthday, Simone Manuel became the first woman of African descent to win an Olympic gold medal in an individual swimming event. She reached this milestone by finishing in a dead tie for first with Canadian Penny Oleksiak and both women set a new Olympic record for the 100m freestyle event. Manuel also won gold as part of the women’s 100m medley relay and took silver in both the individual 50m freestyle and 100m freestyle medley relay. Manuel holds several American and world records and shows promise that the best may be yet to come.
