As a Canadian , I am still pissed off at NBC when they totally and on
purpose ignored the fact that Simone Manuel and Penny Oleksiak were
tied to the 1/100 of a second in the 100 fr in Rio. Simone Manuel was the only winner. I wonder what would have happened if the other American swimmer Abby W was the one who tied Manuel to the 1/ 100 of a second
Which one would have received top billing ? Easy to diss a Canadian
swimmer but a white American swimmer ?
