Michelle Kwan, the American figure skater who owns nine national championships and five world titles, is about to become a non-salaried U.S. diplomat.

On Thursday, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice plans to name the 26-year-old Californian and daughter of Chinese immigrants from Hong Kong as a public diplomacy ambassador, said a senior U.S. official who spoke anonymously pending the formal announcement.

Kwan will represent American values especially to young people and sports enthusiasts and is expected to travel widely, the official said.
