Kuulpeeps, we have been giving you updates on Akwasi Frimpong, the sole Ghanaian representative at the Winter Olympics.
But he isn’t the only Ghanaian competing in the Winter Olympics at South Korea.
Maame Biney is a Ghanaian who is on the USA team.

18-year-old Maame Biney is the first black woman on the U.S. Olympic short-track speedskating team.
Maame Biney’s quest for Winter Olympics glory took a hit this morning.
She got off to a slow start in a 500-meter quarterfinal heat in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
She was second in the first round competition.
But she finished fourth (44.772 seconds) in the quarterfinal heat, eliminating her from the event.
But there is still hope for Maame.
Biney still has the 1,500 meters on Saturday.
We love Maame and what she is doing, even if it’s for the United States of America.
On Thursday and Friday, Ghana’s only representative, Akwasi Frimpong will start his 2018 Winter Competition.
