Luciana Alvarado is using her historic Olympic appearance to promote equality with a tribute to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Alvarado is the first gymnast from Costa Rica to qualify for the Olympics. The 18-year-old ended the country's first-ever qualifying floor routine in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics gymnastics competition by taking a knee, placing her left hand behind her back and raising her right hand into a fist toward the sky.
