Rio Olympics 2016: Simone Manuel wins two more medals, will leave Rio with four
The history-making swimmer has been outstanding in the pool
Simone Manuel could have been content after making history by becoming the first African-American swimmer to win an individual swimming medal.
But that's not her style.
Manuel picked up another medal, this time silver, by finishing second in the women's 50-meter freestyle on Saturday night in Rio de Janeiro.
The 20-year-old finished in a time of 24.09 seconds, just two hundredths of a second off of gold medalist Pernille Blume. Aliaksandra Herasimenia of Belarus took bronze with a time of 24.11.
Blume had the honor of winning Denmark's first swimming medal of the Rio Games.
It was Manuel's third medal of the 2016 Rio Olympics -- she won silver in the 4x100-meter freestyle relay to go along with her 100-meter freestyle gold.
Later in the evening she swam the anchor freestyle leg in the 4x100-meter medley relay, earning her second gold medal of the games. She'll leave Rio with a pair of gold medals and a pair of silver medals.
