A couple of people from Duke just happened to cross paths in Rio on Tuesday.

Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, the coach of the U.S. Olympic men's basketball team, and U.S. Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad crossed paths at Nike House in Rio.

Muhammad graduated from Duke in 2007 with dual bachelor's degrees in international relations and African and African-American studies.

 

 

Muhammad became the first U.S. Olympian to wear a hijab during competition at an Olympics. She won a bronze medal in the women's team sabre event.
