Teen Breakout Speed Skater Maame Biney Looks Back at Her First Olympics and Teases the Future
Maame Biney knows America thinks of her as the bubbly teenage speed skater competing in her first Winter Olympics.

And while it's true that she is bubbly and she is a teenager and she is a first-time Olympic speed skater, the thing she hopes audiences remember about her is her determination.

"What I would really like people to think, not think of me as the really bubbly girl that they see on TV. I want them to think of me as the really determined one be on the podium," Biney told PEOPLE earlier this week on the coast of Gangneung, South Korea.

"What I am going to take away from this experience that I have had is that I have to train harder and have to be the best at everything that I do," Biney says. "So I am really excited to go back home and to do that."

The 18-year-old, who emigrated from Ghana at age 5 and grew up in Virginia with her dad, charmed spectators at home and online with her seemingly constant sunniness and optimism, beginning with an almost viscerally joyful reaction in December to qualifying for Team USA.

An interview with Olympic medalist Apolo Ohno before the opening ceremony two week ago was similarly effusive.

"I like to make other people happy and I think I've accomplished that," says Biney, who recently signed a Kellogg's sponsorship. (While she usually eats healthier options like egg sandwiches, she admits her favorite breakfast is chocolate frosted flakes.)

Biney's cheeriness has buoyed her through her experiences in Korea, where she faced disappointment in a sport crowded with faster athletes. She competed in two short-track speed skating events here, the women's 500-meter and 1,500-meter.
