Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, sister of Bears LB Robert Quinn, wins Olympic gold in 100-meter hurdles

--Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, the sister of Chicago Bears linebacker Robert Quinn, is an Olympic gold medalist.

Hours after breaking an Olympic record in the semifinals, Camacho-Quinn scorched the competition in the women's 100-meter hurdles finals on Sunday night, finishing with a first place finish and a time of 12.37 seconds.

Camacho-Quinn's win inside of Tokyo's Olympic Stadium also has the added distinction of giving Puerto Rico its second-ever Olympic gold medal.

Her historic accomplishment comes on the heels of the 24-year-old wowing spectators Sunday morning when she finished the event in 12.26 seconds -- the fourth-fastest time in history.

With her incredible victory now in the books, Camacho-Quinn has officially been crowned as the world's best 100-meter hurdler, something the Bears hope her brother uses as a source of motivation in his pursuit of quarterbacks in the fall.

"I talked to her two times this morning," Robert Quinn told reporters Monday, per the Chicago Tribune. "Still had the gold medal around her neck. I'm still in disbelief. ... That's my baby sister and she's an Olympian -- I don't know man. I can brag about that."
