Check out the reaction on the first sweep of its kind

Aug. 17 marked a historic occasion on the track. Brianna Rollins, Nia Ali and Kristi Castlin won gold, silver and bronze, respectively. The world watched and marveled at the first 100-meter hurdles sweep in Olympic history.

Everyone from Lil Wayne …

to Michelle Obama weighed in on Twitter.

Many sent their congratulations to the trio, while most of the world was in complete awe of the moment.

The trio even got to meet the legendary NBC weatherman Al Roker. How cool is that?!

Oh, and did we mention that they’re black?


And of course you have this photo that will be added to the Olympic history books. It has potential to become one of the most iconic Olympics photos of all time.

The achievement definitely brought smiles all around.

Now that leaves one thing that should have happened but didn’t.

Next time maybe.
