  • If you needed more proof that Black women are undefeated, over the weekend 24-year-old Alice Dearing qualified for the Tokyo Olympics, making her the first Black female swimmer to represent Great Britain.
  • Dearing finished in fourth place in a 10km marathon race in Portugal on June 19 which qualified her for the Tokyo Olympic Games, ESPN reported. She and the other competitors were told that the first nine swimmers to cross the finish line would secure a place in the Olympics this summer. Dearing delivered, clocking in at two hours, two minutes and one second.
