Female Olympians have been making all sorts of history at this years’ Rio Olympics. Now we have another impressive feat:

China’s golfer Lin Xiyu just become the first woman to make a hole-in-one in the Olympics.

Not to be outdone, New Zealand’s Lydia Ko hit her first career ace on the same hole.

We’re so glad to see these Olympians celebrating each other!

19-year-old Lydia Ko was so surprised by her hole-in-one she was almost speechless. When she finally did find words, her description of the moment was perfect.

She said, “I almost didn’t know how to react. I would have liked to have done a dance or jumped up and down. To do that at the Olympics, it doesn’t get any better than that.”

We can’t help but think of the excited screams Olympics-fanatic (and commentator) Leslie Jones will make when she hears the news.

The odds of a professional golfer landing a hole-in-one are 2,500 to 1. But the odds of two golfers getting a hole-in-one on the same day? Too small to research but let’s just say really slim. Well done, ladies! Way to shape history!
