Brianna Rollins, Nia Ali and Kristi Castlin made history during the 100M race in Rio, when they finished in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

Rollins’ victory was the first gold medal in track for the United States in this year’s Olympics. She completed the race by clearing all 10 hurdles and crossing the finish line in 12.48 seconds. Ali took home the silver with a time of 12.59. Meanwhile, Castlin barely edged out Great Britain’s Cindy Ofili by 0.02 seconds in a photo finish to take the bronze medal and complete the first single-nation sweep of the 100-meter hurdles in the Olympics.


Congrats to these awesome women!
