A tweet from Tai Babilonia

Tai Babilonia is a former pairs skater who skated with Randy Gardner. She was the first partially African American skater to win U.S and World titles.  Her first coach, Mabel Fairbanks, who was never able to compete because she was black, still made it into the U.S. Figure Skating Hall of Fame. 

Like me, Tai started skating with a partner at a young age. She is an active supporter of Diversify Ice.  I am so happy that she took notice of my project!

  1. For me, Tai and Randy were my reason for following pairs skating in the months and years leading up to the 1980 Olympics! She was my fave!
