They say that winning is the best revenge.

Precious Adams, the American teen whose story about struggling against discrimination at the Bolshoi Ballet Academy in Moscow raised eyebrows when it was reported back in November, has won two awards at the prestigious Prix de Lausanne International Ballet Competition in Switzerland.

Adams, who was 18 in November (we’re not sure if she’s since had a birthday), won one of six scholarships awarded and also won the prize for the top contemporary performance.

The Canton, Mich. native will complete her studies in Moscow this spring.
