Alice Tai has always sparked rumors related to her ethnicity. Many people have speculated that she may belong to a mixed heritage. 

She became a center of attention as she secured victory in Common Wealth 2022 after six months of getting her right leg amputated. She had started to re-learn how to walk just a month ago. 

Alice Tai Ethnicity- Who Are Her Parents?

Alice Tai was raised in New Milton after being born in Poole, England, in 1999. Her parents are Angela and Steve.

Her mother is a teacher, and her father is an IT professional. In addition, she has a brother named Christian. Because of her surname, many people have been curious about what ethnicity she has. But, she has not talked about her heritage. 

Although the surname Tai usually belongs to South China and Mainland Southeast Asia. Usually, people from Taiwan have this surname. However, it is possible that her father or mother may come from a foreign bloodline. 

The Paralympic swimmer was born with bilateral talipes (clubfoot). Thus, before the age of 12, she had 14 corrective surgeries to help her condition. She used water as a rehab because she had to re-learn to walk each time she had surgery.

Moreover, the family stayed nearby the sea area, and her mom and dad wanted her to learn how to swim in case they ever went to the beach. So Tai joined the Seagulls Swimming Club in New Milton when he was eight years old and started swimming. 

Her family did not realize that she may be considered a disabled swimmer until the winter of 2010. Once they did, she started her training and competing, which helped her gain the popularity she has today.

However, recently in January 2022, she had to amputate her right leg below the knee because the pain grew severe. And, just a month after learning how to walk again, she remained victorious in Commonwealth Games in 2022.
