The woke Olympics were a TV ratings disaster as Americans tuned out all the politics and protests.

But there are some feel-good stories coming out of Tokyo.

And one of those stories was when an Olympic gold medalist did the last thing anyone ever expected with her prize money.

Tamyra Mensah-Stock became the first U.S. woman to win a wrestling gold medal when she won the heavyweight division competition.

Mensah-Stock then announced she would take $30,000 of her $37,000 prize money and fulfill her mother’s lifelong dream by purchasing her a food truck.

“She’s always doing back-breaking work and . . . I’ve just seen her struggling ever since my dad died and I don’t like seeing it,” Mensah-Stock stated.

“I wanted to give my mom $30,000 so she can get a food truck, ‘cause it’s her dream,” Mensah-Stock added. “And I told her five years ago, ‘Alright mommy, I’ll get you your food truck, but you gotta be responsible. So my mom’s gettin’ her food truck! She’s gonna have her little cooking business. She can cook really, really, really well. Barbecue!”

Mensah-Stock became one of the sensations of the Olympics after she won the gold medal when she tearfully told reporters how much she loved living in the United States and bragged about how proud she was to represent America on the international stage.

“I love representing the U.S.,” Mensah-Stock declared. “I love living there. I love it. And I’m so happy I get to represent USA!”

Mensah-Stock also credited her victory to God.

“Of course, I surprise myself,” Mensah-Stock continued. “It’s by the grace of God I’m even able to move my feet. I just leave it in His hands, and I pray that all the practice . . . my coaches put my through pays off and, every single time, it does.”

After two weeks of depressing sports where athletes who protested and quit on their team got more headlines than the winners, Americans were thrilled there was at least one competitor that reminded everyone of a time when the nation would rally around the Olympics as a source of national pride.
