Another highlight at the event was when LSU's Sa'Myah Smith fainted during the live stream of President Biden's speech. The athlete was standing on the risers behind the podium with her fellow athletes when she lost consciousness.

Biden halted his speech as others rushed to help Smith, but she later flashed a thumbs-up sign to indicate she was all right. "She's okay," the President told the press after Smith received medical attention. "It's a lot of standing. I apologize. It's OK. It's happened lots of times."

LSU Women's basketball head coach Kim Mulkey later said that Smith had been placed in a wheelchair to be taken for further evaluation. "As you can see, we leave our mark where we go. Sa'myah planned that," Mulkey quipped.

"Sa'Myah is fine, for those of you who are concerned. Sa'Myah is fine, I'll assure you of that," she added. "She's kind of, right now, embarrassed. She doesn't want to leave. She wants to stand with us, but she needs to be checked out."

Speaking later to, Smith shared that the heat and the fact they were "standing for quite a while" were probably responsible for her fainting. "I quite don't remember how everything happened," she said before showing off a basketball that was signed by the President. "It's kind of worth it," she smiled.
