Cheltzie Lee, Blasian Ice Princess
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.
