Don't let anyone ever tell you America isn't great- Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama's words come alive in Rio Olympic games!

"Don’t ever let anyone tell you this country isn’t great...", said Michelle Obama: The American women gymnists are role models for the world; especially for those who live in places on the globe where their gender are oppressed and undervalued. 

"Don't ever let anyone tell you America isn't great!" - Michelle Obama. Gymnists and swimmer Simone Manuel are examples.

USA amazing women's gymnastic team 

Throughout the team final at the Rio Olympics, 2012 Olympians Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas, along with first-time Olympians Madison Kocian (right), Laurie Hernandez (left in team photo) and Simone Biles (center), looked focused but confident, never faltering under the weight of the world's or their expectations. 

In my opinion, these five beautiful star athletes seem to fly through the air with the agility of butterflies!

They were coached by the greatness of Marilyn Karolyi, the legendary Romanian coach. "I always tell the team that we are competing with ourselves," she said.

With two consecutive Olympic golds and world championships titles in 2011, 2014 and 2015, the U.S. women have made a seemingly unbreakable habit of winning. And not just edging out their competitors by a few tenths, but leading the competition from start to finish and claiming victory by multiple points.

Simone Manuel broke down in tears when she recognized her historic achievement.

With her victory in the 100-meter freestyle, she became the first African-American woman to capture an Olympic gold medal in swimming.

The 20-year-old Manuel upset world-record holder Cate Campbell and tied with Penny Oleksiak of Canada at the Rio Games on Thursday.

As America continues to lead the medal count in the 2016 Rio Olympics games, it's evident that Mrs. Michelle Obama's words in her now historic speech, given at the Democratic National Committee in Philadelphia, are alive. Her speech lives in the faces and acheievements of all the champion American athletes!
