Serena Williams Does ‘Crip Walk’ After Winning Gold [VIDEO]
Serena Williams celebrates her first Olympic gold medal in a singles event by busting out a Crip Walk. Now walk it out. Now walk it out. Now walk it out.
Serena Williams destroyed Maria Sharapova (6-0, 6-1) in the Olympic women’s final to win gold. Then, Serena destroyed the dance floor by doing a Crip Walk. Somewhere DJ Unk must be very proud. Granted, a Crip Walk isn’t exactly the first thing that jumps to my mind when I think about the Olympics. It’s kind of like busting out the worm in church, but it wasn’t the ultimate sign of disrespect. “I don’t think I’ve ever danced like that,” Serena said. “I don’t even know where the dance came from.”
Serena completed the Golden Slam by winning Olympic gold. She can now add an Olympic gold medal to her 14 Grand Slam singles championships, the most of any active woman. Serena knew the importance of not giving Sharapova any hope. “Against Maria, if you give her any hope, she’s trying to come back,” Williams said. “She won that one game and I could see her pumping her fist, and I was like, ‘Oh boy, here she comes.’ It was really important for me to almost go out there and just do everything.” Beating Sharapova 6-0, 6-1 would qualify as not giving Maria any hope.
