Athletic Sisters: The Return of Starr Andrews

Remember Starr?  Here's a quick refresher from when she was nine:



Aaaaand here she is, now fourteen:






So if she's fourteen now, she'll be seventeen come the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. She's already got ten years experience behind her and at fourteen she's doing certain moves (like the Bielmann spin) way better than some skaters in their late teens and early twenties.  I'm rooting for her hard, y'all, 'cause France and Australia can't be the only ones trying to put Black/Blasian girls on the ice.

We need to step up our representation in this sport and do the Goddess Surya proud.
