A young black lady has made history at the ongoing Olympic Games in Tokyo after becoming the first black woman to gold at the Wrestling event.

“Tamyra Mensah-Stock made history as the first Black woman to win Gold in Olympics wrestling
Her story is an interesting one. Her Dad is Ghanaian; she quit track and field because she was getting bullied in school, joined the wrestling team and is now Olympic Gold medalist. What a story.”
Some Ghanaians have shared their thoughts about this feat and some of the reactions we gathered are;
Nana Adu – Sometimes I don’t blame them when they chose Europe over Africa because most of them find peace in Europe. Until our leaders begins to change their minds , things will continue to be like this . Sometimes it’s better to eat well outside than to starve at home.
Viruz de Cyruz – She won gold because we represented USA if she was to represent Ghana she will not win even chamber Pot
Sethlord Dodi Zenzen – Congratulations whether you represented Ghana or USA still you’re black, strong and beautiful with a Ghanaian name too, sister gye w3ni wai
Isaac Nimako Mensah – We had a certain matured Marta Bissue who could have easily won us 800m gold medal but we have decided to suspend her since 2014 bcus of someones colloquial interest.
Charles Buabeng – For USA, we noe dey treat our sports men n women well.. Hw can they represent us
Even if they win, the officials will fight with them cus of bonus.
