J.R. Celski... 2010 Winter Olympics Bronze Medalist

I watched the Winter Olympics cheering for team USA. As parents of JR Celski were flashed in front of the camera, I can see that his mom looks Filipino. Indeed, Sue (JR's mother) is of Filipino descent!

J. R. Celski was born in Monterey, California where his father was serving in the U.S. Army. He was raised in Federal Way, Washington. His father, Robert, is of Polish descent and his mother, Sue, is of Filipino descent. Celski has two older brothers, Chris and David Celski.
