Morolake Akinosun is going to Rio as a member of the USA Track & Field 4x100m relay pool. She’s a 22-year-old who’s set to graduate from Texas this year, and she already won gold representing the U.S. in the 2015 Pan American Games.

Akinosun had confidence that this success would come. She tweeted about it five years ago.

Pretty amazing.
