Jasmine Camacho-Quinn of Puerto Rico, the country's second woman to win an Olympic medal, has much to celebrate today — not only did she win gold in the 100 meter hurdles, she also got a shoutout from reggaeton star Daddy Yankee.
"Congratulations on that gold medal. Thank you for representing our island so highly. Worthy representation!" Daddy Yankee said in an Instagram post, which was translated from Spanish.
Daddy Yankee's surprising mention stunned Camacho-Quinn, who tweeted, "Do yall understand how that feels?"
Camacho-Quinn won the women's 100 meter hurdles, with a time of 12.37 seconds.
She claimed Puerto Rico’s first medal of these Olympics. It’s the country’s second-ever Olympic track and field medal, and its first gold medal in a track and field event.
