High Achieving Jamaican Siblings Featured By National Geographic
Two high achieving Jamaican siblings were recently featured in a short film by National Geographic.
Maurice and Alicia Ashley both have a very competitive mindset that has helped them to reach the very top of their respective fields.
In 1999, Maurice Ashely became the first African-American International Grandmaster of chess when he defeated Adrian Negulescu.
Maurice was also the first African American to be inducted into the United States Chess Hall of Fame.
And in 2015, Alicia Ashley defeated Christina McMahon to earn her 5th Wold Boxing Championship at the age of 48.
She was also recognised as the oldest female boxing champion in history by Guinness World Records.
The inspiring film which spans 10 minutes and 40 seconds was directed by Ted Sananman and wonderfully introduces the high achieving pair while showcasing their tremendous talent and dedication.
