Read the article, which features her Belizean heritage. Very touching.

She and the rest of the team have been amazing to watch!

But I do have one small question. How did she get dual citizenship?

Her adoptive mother (Nellie) is Belizean.

Wiz...yes I understand that. But is it that easy? A non blood relative is Belizean and Simone gets a BZ passport?

Belize passport. Dunno. When a child is adopted they receive all rights afforded a biological child.

True. But a biological child that is born in Belize. No?

A Belizean living in the US has a child (or adopts a child - considered the same, otherwise, why adopt?)that child has dual citizenship.
