Davis' place in the history books already is secured as the first African American athlete from any nation to win an individual gold medal at the Winter Games. [emphasis mine]I realize I'm picking a teensy nit here (and perhaps exposing myself as woefully ignorant of racial nomenclature), but don't you have to be from the U.S. to be an African American? Where's Doug Williams when you need him?
(Note: In the course of composing this awesome post, I discovered that the infamous "black quarterback" question Williams was asked is actually an urban legend. My world is in pieces.)
