Manager on leaked photos: 'Ahye has never hid anything'

One week after sprinter Michelle-Lee Ahye captured this country’s first ever gold medal by a female athlete at the Commonwealth Games, a photograph of her and her partner in a compromising position has been leaked online as part of an apparent smear campaign.

The photograph was taken from the private Instagram account of Chelsea Renee Ahye. The username on that account is mrskinglee10.6.

Ahye goes by the username kinglee10.6 and her Instagram account is also set to private.

President: Our little girls & boys have another sporting "shero" to emulate

"I congratulate sprinter Michelle Lee Ahye on her historic Commonwealth Gold Medal in the Women’s 100 meter final.

Ms. Ahye’s world class performance is a shining example of what I meant when I encouraged citizens to be the light.

Michelle fanned her personal flicker of self-belief with hard work and commitment and now her light shines golden.

I am delighted for her and for our country.

Ms. Ahye’s mother generously declared that this medal belongs not only to Michelle but also to the nation.
