Meet a Patriotic, Female Olympic Champion the Mainstream Media Will Ignore


5,029 views

Let’s face it, the Tokyo Olympics have been a stinkfest filled with wokeness and COVID-19 slave treatment.

Ratings have tanked and some of America’s most high-profile athletes and teams haven’t lived up to expectations.

However, there are still some bright spots if you know where to look.

The problem is that American mainstream media won’t feature athletes who love their country.

They keep the spotlight on whiny, unappreciative prima donnas.

And it turns away sports fans who want to watch the world’s greatest athletes compete and show pride in their countries.

One athlete who deserves the spotlight is Tamyra Mensah-Stock.

Tamyra won the gold medal in the women’s freestyle 68 kg wrestling.

She defeated Nigeria’s Blessing Oborududu to become the 2nd American woman to win a gold medal in wrestling.

Check out clips from her post-match interview:

Tamyra has an contagious spirit and has instantly become an inspiration around the world.

A true Patriot proud to represent their country on the world’s biggest stage.

The Guardian shared this info on Tamyra’s story:

Tamyra Mensah-Stock became the second American woman to win a wrestling gold medal with victory in the 68kg freestyle category on Tuesday.

The reigning world champion appeared to sustain a leg injury 40 seconds into the six-minute bout but recovered to win 4-1 on points, spinning her opponent over, scoring points from a pair of takedowns and defending solidly as the seconds ticked away.

The result means that Nigeria’s first Olympic wrestling medal is a silver for Blessing Oborududu, the 32-year-old 10-time African champion.

NATIONAL POLL: Is CNN The Enemy Of The People?

Mensah-Stock, 28, formed a heart sign with her hands at the end then dissolved into tears as she draped a US flag over her shoulders and walked around the mat to take applause from spectators at the Makuhari Messe Hall in Chiba, about 19 miles east of central Tokyo. She is also the first black woman to win wrestling gold in Olympic history, according to Team USA.

An ebullient character who was born in Chicago and raised in the Houston area, she took up wrestling after being bullied by teammates on her high school track-and-field squad. She came close to quitting the sport after her father died in a car accident on the way home from one of her high school tournaments.

She produced a poised and composed performance against Oborududu despite final preparations that were undermined by nerves and noisy neighbours. “I tried to sleep last night and the people above me were extremely loud so that didn’t really happen,” she said in a press conference.

“And then in the morning, made weight, I watched two episodes of The Walking Dead, my coach, Izzy [Vladislav Izboinikov], he made sure I got food in me because I did not feel like sleeping. I was nervous. Man, I was so nervous.”

Watching her teammates compete in the morning session did not help. “That made me even more jittery,” she said. “There was just like lot of, like, nerve-wracking moments and I just tried to stay calm. That was extremely impossible. I honestly don’t even freaking know how I did it. I just kept telling my coaches, ‘I’m nervous. I’m scared. I’m nervous. I’m freaking out here. Help me! I’m freaking out!’”

The US Olympic and Paralympic Committee rewards gold-medal winning Olympic athletes with a prize of $37,500. Mensah-Stock already knows how she intends to spend it. “I wanted to give my mom $30,000 so she can get a food truck. It’s her dream,” she said. “My mom’s getting her food truck! She’s going to have a little cooking business. She can cook really, really, really well – barbecue. I don’t eat it because I’m a pescatarian now.”
