#BlackGirlMagic was witnessed again at the 2016 Olympics in Rio. 

This time three amazing female track and field stars made history together with a medals sweep in the 100m hurdles.  Bri Rollins won gold, Nia Ali took the silver and Kristi Castlin made away with bronze.  It was the first time a country swept a track and field race in Olympic history.

Congrats to these ladies!  Their win would make for a great ad or endorsement using all three ladies.  Let’s hope the big companies are already on it.
