Shanae Collins has been skating her own way since she was a kid. Fast, hard, aggressive—her style and passion have placed her on track for the 2020 Olympics.

She’s one of the toughest chicks in skating, making it through broken bones, lost friends, and the lack of support offered to female skaters.

But she hasn't let any of that slow her down or stop her being exactly who she wants to be.
