This Team U.S.A. wrestler was literally wrapped in the flag after her gold medal win. Her jubilant patriotism was a welcome change from the many wokescolds who are wearing the red, white, and blue in Tokyo.

In recent years, athletes who have made bold protests against the United States during international competitions have been making headlines while being lauded by the left. We’ve seen them take the knee, disrespect the anthem and the flag, and make protesting gestures on the podium.

Tamyra Mensah-Stock didn’t do any of that.

She was proud to represent the United States at the Olympics and her post-win pro-U.S.A. interview was like something from another era — one where athletes were proud to be on Team U.S.A.

Women’s wrestler Tamyra Mensah-Stock set social media aflame with her national pride Tuesday after she proclaimed her love for representing the US at this year’s Olympics.

The 28 year old had just made history, becoming the second American and the first black woman to win the Gold in the sport’s 17-year history in the games, and appeared overwhelmed with joy.

Standing with the American flag draped around her she was asked what it felt like to represent the United States.

‘It feels amazing’ she exclaimed. ‘I love representing the US, I freaking love living there. I love it and I’m so happy I get to represent USA. Love it.’

She’s just so full of joy.

Man, that part about her dad where she broke down…

She’s a strong woman in every sense of the word.

What a role model for girls everywhere.

Here she is giving glory to God and talking about how much she loves the U.S.A.!

How incredibly refreshing!

There’s just so much to love about Tamyra Mensah-Stock. She talks about the hell that her coaches put her through, but said that it paid off for her.

She’s not just a champion, but she has overcome family tragedy and is beautifully selfless.

The Tokyo games were her first appearance at the Olympics, and Mensah-Stock had competed in the women’s freestyle light heavyweight category, defeating Blessing Oborududu from Nigeria to win the Gold in the final.

She curled her hands into a heart-shaped gesture immediately after her win and was in tears.

Earlier in the competition she went up against 2016 Gold medalist Sara Dosho from Japan.

She started wrestling at age 15, around the time when her father was killed in a car accident on the way back from one of her matches.

On Tuesday, she said she would give $30,000 of her winnings from the win to her mother Shonda so she can buy the food truck she has always dreamed of owning.

She lost her dad in a car accident after he was coming home from one of her matches, and managed to keep going, and she’s giving some of her winnings to her mom to live out her dream…? What an amazing lady!

God bless you, Tamyra!

This is what American athletes should look like.

Biblical Badasses: The Women

In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
