Cheltzie Lee, Blasian Ice Princess

Thanks, Hateya!

This is my fault y'all.  A reader emailed me about this girl MONTHS ago and I kept delaying.  But now I need to get on and stay on the ball from hereon out.

Born in 1993, Cheltzie Lee's father is Chinese (he was born in Bangladesh, though).  And Cheltzie's got a black mama from Louisiana, y'all!  Somehow, those two met up and married in Australia, the result being Miss Thang here...who was the 2007-2008 Junior National Champion and is the 2010 Australian National Champion (by the way, she competed in gymnastics until 2004).

Go figure.  Skater while you're at it.

I don't think I need to tell you how skilled and graceful this young lady is.  Nor how simply bad-ass she is.  I'll admit, I'm a fan of figure-skating, but I stopped watching because I wasn't seeing nearly enough brown girls.  Chica here, however, has fully restored my interest.

  1. How fabulous is she? What a lovely surprise. I stopped watching figure skating ages ago. I might just tune in again to see her skate.

  2. Yea! I adore watching her skate. I wish I could send her money for a new coach and training facilities. Thankfully, where I live everyone is seen. Broadcasting begins with the lowest ranked people in any sport and works it way up, so I've seen Cheltzie many times. She has so much potential.

    Reader = me! ;D

  4. No problem. I love figure skating, too, and it was an extremely pleasant surprise to find Cheltzie Lee among the up and coming.
