Tiffani Tucker takes to the ice to feature athlete competing in Gay Games
LAKEWOOD, OH (WOIO) - It's been more than two decades since Reporter/Anchor Tiffani Tucker and her former skating partner Frank Singley skated together.
"I truly miss skating alongside you," said Singley, to Tiffani.
Tiffani and Singley made history together, the first African American Ice Dance Team in the US, winning a bronze medal at the US Nationals.
"I still get more proud of it every day because I do notice what a big deal it was," said Singley.
Singley has continued his skating career. He's competed and medaled several Gay Games. He competes in the figure skating competition on Wednesday at 11:15 a.m., proud to be skating in his hometown.
"The city has been welcoming. I think we've got a lot to show and a lot of things here that people really didn't expect us to have," Singley said.
This time, Singley's performance is bittersweet. He is dedicating his performance to his parents who recently passed away. He said it's not about taking home a medal.
"This is really a tribute to everything they put into my skating career over the last 38 years," Singley said. "It's really about the comradery, the feeling of love."
Even though Tiffani and Singley no longer share the ice, they still share the love of the sport and the history making partnership.
