Congratulations to Claressa Shields for winning her first gold medal.  Yesterday,  my timeline was jumping with news about Flint's own Claressa Shields winning the first gold medal for women boxing.  So today I decided to share with you how twitter reacted to the historic moment.

Below are just a few tweets I thought were interesting enough to share.  Everyone was extremely excited for Claressa Shields especially everyone here in Flint, Michigan.  Our city needed Claressa Shields to win the gold medal and she did just that.

Make sure you follow Claressa Shields on twitter and show her some love.
