Goyart Mens, a four-time Olympic medalist, will wear the women’s gold medal at the Rio Olympics.
She has won gold at the London 2012 Olympics, silver at the 2012 London Paralympics and bronze at the 2016 Rio Olympics and she is the first black athlete in the sport to win three Olympic medals in a row.
It’s the first time a British athlete has won a gold medal in a mixed martial arts event.
“I’m really excited for Goy, it’s been a big part of my life and I really love her.
It’s been an amazing experience,” Olympic champion Sarah Moore told The Independent.
I’m looking forward to it.
I’m excited for it to be a little bit more of a celebration for her because it’s a bit of a milestone for her.
But we have to have a little celebration for Glyn too.
She’s a young girl who has come so far, she’s just now getting here to Rio.
She was born here, and I hope she’s very proud of her new achievement and she’s looking forward for Rio.
This is really the start of a new chapter for the sport, and we’ll see what the future holds.
We have the gold medal, and now we just have to get on with it and we’ve got to celebrate and we can’t look back.
The Olympics are a special event, and it’s very much an emotional experience.
It is a little surreal to go from being in the Olympics in the same stadium, to being in front of people on a stage and it can be emotional, and for me, I don’t have that to look forward to.
Goyard’s medal means she’s now just one of three British Olympians to win medals in the women´s sport.

There is a bidding war underway, with several clubs including the likes of FC Copenhagen, Bournemouth and Southampton vying for the 25-year-old.
Mens, who started out as a junior, was born on the Isle of Man and moved to London as a toddler before being born in London.
Her father is an Australian Olympic athlete and her mother is a former British gymnast.
Aged just 16, Mens won gold in the 100m freestyle at the 2004 Athens Olympics, and in the 200m medallists at the 2002 Sydney Games.
In 2013, she became the first British athlete to win the 400m at the Tokyo Olympics, while she won bronze in the individual 100m hurdles at the Beijing Games in 2014.
