Violinist Vanessa Mae, who is a half Thai, will ski for Thailand at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, BBC reported.

The BBC website reported that Mae will compete as Vanessa Vanakorn using her father's surname.
The 2014 Winter Olympics starts next month.
Manager Giles Holland, speaking on behalf of Mae, told the BBC: "It would appear that she's done it. She's done it by a whisker, but she's done it."
"Vanessa Mae has unofficially qualified for the Olympic Games. That I could say to you," added Marko Rudolf, a Slovenian masters skier with links to the committee that organised the races.
