To start the day …. “Monica Puig …. first Olympic gold medal for Puerto Rico…. “!!


~~August 14, 2016~~ 


I have watched Olympics games all my life.

I felt emotions as athletes achieved their dream of receiving the coveted Olympic medals, particularly the Gold one.

I remember how it felt to see their emotions, their tears as their country’s flag and their country’s anthem was played.

It always gave me chills and tears came to my eyes.

This time is so very much special.

This time it’s a Puerto Rican, Monica Puig.

It was incredible to see her when she realized what she had accomplished.

Her emotions were contagious.

Tears, chills and pride …

… as the Puerto Rican flag came up and the national anthem was played.

Never before in my lifetime.

Thank you, Monica, for this gift you have given all Puerto Ricans.

You are our pride and joy!



Monica Puig of Puerto Rico, the 34th-ranked tennis player in the world, stunned world no. 2 Angelique Kerber of Germany in the Olympic gold medal match in Rio on Saturday, pulling out a history-making win in three tough sets, 6-4, 4-6, 6-1.

As soon as she won the final point, Puig dropped her racket and mouthed the words, “Oh my God.”

By making her surprising run to the finals in Rio, Puig was assured of becoming the first woman to win an Olympic medal representing Puerto Rico. Now, she’s the first person ever to win gold for the island.

Tennis player Monica Puig wins Puerto Rico’s first-ever Olympics gold medal
Toaa soundtrack of “Si se puede!” from the stands, Monica Puig won Puerto Rico’s first gold medal in any sport in Olympic history, upsetting Angelique Kerber of Germany 6-4, 4-6, 6-1 in the women’s tennis singles final Saturday at the Rio de Janeiro Games.

Yes, she can. And, yes, she did.

Puig is also the first woman representing Puerto Rico to earn a medal of any color at an Olympics, and when she finished a tense closing game — saving six break points and converting her fourth match point — she dropped her racket and went over to collect a flag she paraded across the court.
