Meet SHANI DAVIS of the 2014 TEAM USA SOCHI OLYMPICS SPEED SKATING TEAM!!!

Raised on the Southside of CHICAGO, IL, Speed Skater SSHANI DAVIS perfected his speed by running from the tough kids growing up.  The 31-year-old is a two-time Olympic gold medalist.


 
+ In Turin, Italy in 2006, Davis became the first black athlete from any nation to win a gold medal in an individual sport at the Olympic Winter Games.

+ His guilty pleasure is pizza. He told Wayne Drehs from ESPN, "Man, I’m a Chicagoan. Chicago pizza. The best pizza is from Chicago; it’s the best in the world.”

+ Shani (which is Swahili), in English translates loosely to a combination of “light” and “weight”.

+ It is "alleged" that Frozone, a superhero from The Incredibles, is based off Shani Davis.
