The Olympic highs and lows that defined the 2016 Games for women: Canada’s Penny Oleksiak and Simone Manuel from the U.S. both touched the wall at 52.70 seconds in the women’s 100m freestyle, confusing commentators for a few seconds as they tried to decipher what just happened. Not only did both ladies break an Olympic record and tie for gold, but Manuel’s gold medal win is the first time an African-American woman has won an individual medal in swimming.
