If you haven't already learned this icon's name, it's Christina Clemons. And based on her most recent spotlight moment, this athlete proved that she's not only passionate about track and field but about Doritos, too. So much so that Christina handcrafted and wore a pair of mini Dorito bag earrings to the Olympic qualifiers!

That's right! This hurdle track star took her talents to the max tenfold when she qualified for the Tokyo Olympic team. After the race, Christina immediately took to Twitter to share the exciting news and shout out her mini creation of Cool Ranch Dorito earrings.

"Congrats on the accomplishment. Hit our DMs so we can talk," the official Doritos Twitter page said to Christina. And, seeing this, many users hopped onto the platform to share their opinions as well. "@Doritos y'all need to go ahead and sponsor this young lady's @Olympics dream journey," one person commented.

"This bold, intense, serious young woman should be sponsored by @Doritos. I can imagine an ad of her running with flames coming from her shoes as she goes around the track. Support our Olympic athletes!" said someone else. Doritos spoke up, and we imagine it totally made Clemons' day for a second time!

"An icon...this is your moment," the official Doritos Twitter page said while retweeting Christina's legendary announcement. As far as we can tell, there's a pretty high chance the chip company will either come out with a Clemon's collection or that she will get free Doritos for life! It sounds like a win-win either way if you ask us.
