Serena Williams Crip Walking After Winning Gold. Serena Williams celebrated completing her Golden Slam with a funky jig known as the "Crip Walk." Williams beat Maria Sharapova in order to grab the gold. After defeating Maria Sharapova, receiving her first singles gold medal and finishing up her first career Golden Slam at the London Olympics, tennis star Serena Williams got down in true gangsta fashion by engaging in what is known as the "Crip Walk." As the name might imply, the Crip Walk, or C-Walk, was developed by Crip gang of Los Angeles, California in the early 1970s. It was the result of their rivalry with the Bloods making its way into the world of entertainment, thus prompting rappers to incorporate "gang dance" into their music videos.
