Olympic Gold Medalist Wrestler Tamyra Mensah-Stock: ‘I Love Representing The U.S.’

A reporter asked U.S. wrestler Tamyra Mensah-Stock a simple question after she won gold at the Tokyo Olympics in the 68kg final over Blessing Oborududu of Nigeria: “How does it feel to represent your country like this.”

“I love representing the U.S. I freaking love living there,” the Olympic gold medalist said before pumping her fist, smiling, and pulling the stars and stripes tighter to her body.

Mensah-Stock, who began wrestling in the 10th grade in Katy, Texas after being prodded by her sister, said that she didn’t have role models to look up to early in her career, but she always had her sister to fall back on.

“When I first started wrestling, I wanted to be an emblem, a light to younger women and show them that you can be silly, you can have fun and you can be strong,” Mensah-Stock told USA Today. “You can be tough, you can be a wrestler and you don’t have to be like this, – growl – ‘I’m gonna be mean to you.’”

Mensah-Stock, an unknown to Mainstreet USA before today’s interview, is easily the most likable athlete representing America at the Games. Her smile, love of country, and positive nature have captured the attention of citizens who’ve been beaten over the head by social justice warriors who’ve sucked the fun out of sports in the last several years.

Asked what she plans to do with the money that comes with winning a gold medal, Mensah-Stock knew exactly what she would do with the cash.

“I wanted to give my mom $30,000 so she can get a food truck, ‘cause it’s her dream,” she said. “And I told her five years ago, ‘Alright mommy, I’ll get you your food truck, but you gotta be responsible.’

“So my mom’s gettin’ her food truck! She’s gonna have her little cooking business. She can cook really, really, really well. Barbecue!”

And there you have it, the best story from Tokyo. Now we’ll see if the athletes who hate this country agree.

  1. This is how ALL competitors behaved before Kapernik made it fashionable to shit all over the Flag. Glad to see there is still some American Pride and doubly glad to see there is still some American Pride in the black community. Great job Tamrya putting Patriotism first instead of following the woke sheep – when everyone is protesting then the real rebels are the non-protestors!

    Congratulations to this great American athlete Tamrya and best of luck to her and her Mom who obviously raised her right.

  2. Fantastic! This is what the Olympics used to be and should still be. Represent your country proudly.
    Her family came from Ghana and look what happened.She didn’t use the woe is me excuse. She busted her butt and now she can wear that gold medal with pride.
    Unfortunately she will probably be attacked by the anti American faction.
    I’d like to see her grapple with some soccer players.

  3. Like Red Dot said: Finally, someone I can root for! Good for her. I`ve avoid these games because of that purple haired cunt along with that paralympic bitch and a couple of others. If her mom ever brings that truck up to Minneapolis, i`ll buy her out. A bbq restaurant chain should sign her up for endorsements IMMEDIATLY!

  4. That’s what I’m talking about Sista Queen. Represent the culture and hold your head. You walk in the footsteps of GIANTS. Your parents and your community are extremely proud of you. Stay true to yourself and don’t let people try and appropriate you for their cause. “Stick with the people and things that got you there” #BWM “God did that thing” #KeepYourEyesOnThePrize

  5. This totally made me cry tears of joy! I love her attitude, her smile, and her love of our country. This is what the Olympics are all about…or what they used to be all about. I’m so proud to have Tamyra represent the U-S-A!
