An electrifying skater with an infectious smile, Maame Biney is eyeing a breakout Winter Games after gaining fans as a charismatic 18-year-old in PyeongChang when she became the first Black woman to compete on a U.S. Olympic short track team.

She’s become versatile over multiple distances in recent years, but remains strongest in the fastest short track event, the 500m. Biney, originally born in Ghana, will look to channel fearsome alter ego “Anna Digger” when she takes the ice in February.

Biney will see her first action on February 5, the day after the Opening Ceremony, in the preliminary heats of the women’s 500m. Should she progress through the rounds in each of her events, she could find herself in action during five of the six days of short track at the Winter Olympics.
