Following Serena Williams’ dominant match on Saturday against Maria Sharapova (6-0, 6-1) in the Olympics women’s singles tennis event, Williams decided to do a little Crip Walking post-match.
Of course there were some reactions to the highlight of the match and Serena becoming the second woman to complete the career Golden Slam (winning the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, and US Open, plus Olympic singles gold).
Serena crip walking at the Olympics was like Chris Rock shouting out Brooklyn at the Academy Awards. Subversive. Unapologetically Black.

Later today, Serena and Venus Williams play in the women’s doubles semifinals. Here’s a link so we can all learn and do this dance with the Williams sisters after they, hopefully, win gold in that event.
