‘From ice skating champion to adult film actress’: The failure of a successful athlete


“I was third in America and champion of the Philippines, and a junior was sent to replace me at the Sochi Olympics. I was really good, I sacrificed everything I had. Because of such injustices, I became an unhappy person who lives a really bad life.” – Melissa said in 2015, and the same year she left professional sports.


Towards the end of her career, she worked for some time as a skating coach in Thailand and America but says she was too young and failed to establish authority.

In addition, she worked as a waitress, saleswoman and model, but failed to earn enough money.

In 2019, she became an adult film actress and the face of the adult site. She is known by her stage name Jada Kai.

It is really unfortunate that such talents fail to find their deserved place in sports. There are numerous examples where female athletes end their careers ingloriously and unfortunately find their “future” in the adult film industry.
