So, serious question here.How can she compete for the US if she’s from Ghana?Why not represent Ghana?
The story doesn’t mention if she’s a US citizen or legal resident alien.
It would be unfair for rich countries to cherry pick athletes from other countries to compete under that flag.
Her enthusiasm is contagious, even through the TV! I was grinning from ear to ear after they talked to her before the opening ceremony; it was impossible not to cheer up even a little bit. She’s displayed such a positive personality, and is an amazing athlete to boot. I’ve got tons of respect for her.
I saw her skate and come in 2nd, all I remember was her Dad standing and cheering and the poor older woman behind him, so pissed off she couldn't see. Haha.
