First let me start of by congratulating ALL of the athletes who have made the US Olympic Team and will be representing our country in the 2014 Winter Olympics. I wish them all good luck and pray for their safety in Sochi, Russia.
I am focusing on black athletes here to show young black children that there are other sports besides football and basketball at which they can excel and hopefully broaden their horizons. The more that a child is exposed to the more they can learn and not necessarily about sports. It can also about the connections one can make through sports or other interest that may be sparked by participating in different things.
