What makes Maame Biney so happy? :)
Going 25 to 30 mph on the track, going faster than a school zone, going to the 2018 Winter Olympics as the first Black woman to qualify for the US speed skating team. Biney is skating her way into history and maintaining an infectious smile along the way.
"I aspire to be that athlete or that person to use their platform ... That's what I want my legacy to be. Not only just being a speed skater — I am a role model and I am a leader to people of color, Black people, and younger kids too."—Maame Biney
