Bowie became an American hero at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The Mississippi-born athlete took three medals home from Brazil, including a gold medal for her contribution to U.S. women's relay team 4x100 win.

The following year, Bowie was named the World's Fastest Woman after she, quite literally, flew past the competition at the 2017 IAAF World Championships. Bowie clocked a time of 10.85 in the 100-meter dash.
