NBC Muffed Simone Manuel’s Historic Moment – Hartford Courant

As an avid competitive swimmer growing up, I couldn’t wait for the Summer Olympics every four years. It is the only time that my first love, swimming, is featured night and day on a major television network. Compared to the other “premier” Olympic sports covered during prime time, such as track and field, basketball and even gymnastics, it is obvious that swimming is overwhelmingly a very white sport. It always has been, as far back as I can remember. As an African-American female swimmer, I was particularly inspired when I would see other swimmers who looked like me competing on the world stage, whether they were American or not.
