Adventure Sports Weekly editor Wina Sturgeon has written a story on speedskater Shani Davis that appears in the November 14 issue of USA Today.
Davis has already won four Olympic medals, golds in the 1000 meter race at Torino in 2006 and Vancouver in 2010, and silvers in the 1500 distance. He’s a sure shot to make the U. S. Olympic team for Sochi.
He’s also has millions of fans as the first African American to win Olympic medals in an individual sport in the Winter Games.
“I found Davis to be charming and relaxed, without any of the pre-Olympic tension so many athletes are showing as the big event gets closer,” Sturgeon says.
