Zhu Yi, a United States-born figure skater who defected to China, is repeatedly taking hard falls.
“The American-born Olympic ice skater who gave up her U.S. citizenship to compete for China has fallen on the ice for a second time, infuriating her adopted homeland,” reports Breitbart News.
“Beverly Yi, 19, was born in the U.S.A. but a few years ago decided to renounce her American citizenship and moved to China to make her debut as a Chinese figure skater. She changed her name to a Zhu Yi and began appearing in competitions in the communist nation,” according to Breitbart News.
“Yi’s debut was bad enough,” reports Breitbart News, “but China’s ardent Olympics fans were sparked to anger all over again on Monday when Zhu Yi fell on the ice for a second time during Monday’s final event in the team competition.”
“Yi’s Olympic debut was an absolute debacle. Not only did she fall to the ice during her routine, but she scored in dead last place in her category. And Chinese fans were furious at her abject failure,” reported Breitbart News.
“Immediately after her debut, Yi told the media, ‘I’m upset and a little embarrassed,’ after she fell on the ice. But as she left the ice on Monday, it was clear she was crying her eyes out over her second terrible showing,” reports Breitbart News.
