Sydney McLaughlin wants you to know it is her birthday

In addition to the gold in the 4x400m relay, McLaughlin also won gold in the 4x400m hurdles at this Olympiad.
McLaughlin has a long way to go to catch Allyson Felix for the record of 11 track and field medals by a US Olympian, but two golds is a great start.
