Tied for Gold Rio85
I was struck by the difference in skin tone of the two women who managed to tie for the Gold Medal in the Women's 100 Meter Freestyle. Both Americans technically, Penny Oleksiak (Canada) and Simone Manuel (USA) will share the top step of the podium and hear both of their national anthems played as their flags are raise together. Manuel becomes the first African-American to win a Gold medal for the United States in swimming... It is about time!
