Olympic gold medalist Tamyra Mensah-Stock revealed that she plans to purchase her mother a food truck , since it has been her dream.
Soon after her win, Mensah-Stock, who is of Ghanaian descent, was awarded $37,500, a sum of which she revealed during a press conference she would use to purchase a food truck for her mother. She said, “I wanted to give my mom $30,000 to get a food truck. It’s her dream. I told her five years ago, ‘I’ll get you your food truck, but you gotta be responsible.’ She’s like, ‘Thank you, baby’…so my mom’s getting her food truck! She can cook, really really well.”
Mensah-Stock became the first Black woman to win an Olympic gold medal in wrestling for Team USA, following her 4-1 triumph over Team Nigeria’s Blessing Oborududu.
