#Represent: Danusia Francis at the Olympics
Looks like Jamaica's getting a second representative!
Funny story about Danusia: She was born in Britain, currently lives in Los Angeles and attends UCLA (whom she also competes for). She was a reserve gymnast on behalf of Britain in 2012, but because she represented Jamaica at the 2015 World Championships, she qualified to test for their Olympic team. Needles to say, she passed.
I'm really excited that Danusia is at the Olympics because she's known for her flexibility, which I can only describe as, well...insane.
This truly is the Blackest year ever. Someone said this year's Olympic gymnastic event is going to be a bloodbath, and well...yes and no. I'm so glad all these Black and Brown girls are making/going to make history this year, so it's win-win either way. However...they all have eyes on the gold, and they all can't have it.
Let the games begin.
