Already a crowd favorite, Fu Yuanhui mentioned getting her period on a day when she competed in the Olympics’ 4x100m medley relay, and the world went wild because who knew that women had menstrual periods that might come along at inopportune times?

Well, all of us knew that but few of us talk about it. The Chinese swimmer was quick to say that her period was not an excuse for a less-than-gold-medal-level performance. Good for her. It happens.
