Shani Davis in the Spotlight

While preparing this month’s Spotlights for the Biography Resource Center homepage, we worked feverishly to identify Olympics athletes that dovetailed with Black History Month — in other words, African American Winter Olympians. Earlier this month we looked at Herschel Walker, and then shifted over this week to Shani Davis. We’re not above patting ourselves on the back, so check out how psychic our editorial team is: Shani Davis, current Spotlightee, won the gold medal in the 1000m speedskating race yesterday. It was his second straight gold medal in the event, which he also won in Torino in 2006.
