Black Girl Joy IS Speed Skater Maame Biney!

posted by Jeanne Sparrow - 

17 year old Maame Biney just got a spot on the US Olympic Speed Skating Team and her reaction is the definition of black girl joy! 

She’s the first black woman to ever qualify for the team… and only the second black person to make it onto the team.  Shani Davis was the first in 2002 and he was also the first African-American athlete to win gold at a winter Olympics.

See the video from her interview on NBC Sports right after she won here and find out more details on her win here

She's a big reason to watch the Winter Olympics in February!

3️⃣ more. 🇺🇸 #winterolympics
