This gal,* at 29, won the 500 meter speed skating competition with a 37.04 time. She is the first Black woman to win an individual medal in this event. Her Sunday win comes with accolades, however, the story behind her win is equally astounding. Teammate Brittany Bowe gave Erin her position on the event as she felt Erin had a better chance of medaling, and she certainly did!
