Vanessa James is a British-French figure skater. As one of our Facebook posters pointed out, we ought to show her some love and attention, considering what happened the last time we had an incredible Black skater.
Vanessa James (I love hearing French commentators say her name) has been a single skater, but now does pair skating. She was paired with Yannick Bonheur, making them the first Black couple skaters to participate in the Winter Olympics. The two eventually ended their partnership, however, and Vanessa now skates with Morgan Cipres.
Check her out on Facebook.
