Regardless of the color of his skin, Shani Davis is an incredible athlete and a gold medal champion. Growing up in Chicago, Davis took to speed skating at an early age and quickly became a prodigy in the sport. As an African-American in a traditionally white sport, Davis had to overcome racism throughout his career, and he did it by posting incredible times on the track. At the 2006 Olympic Games in Turin, he became the first black athlete to ever win a gold medal in an individual sport when he won the 1,000 meters, and he also picked up a silver medal in the 1,500 meters. Since then, Davis won two more gold medals at the 2007 world championships in Salt Lake City and he continues to shine on the speed skating World Cup circuit.
