Willie Davenport 

Willie Davenport already won a Gold Medal for 110-Meter hurdles in the 1968 Summer Olympics. But he added another Olympic accomplishment to his belt when he became one of the first two African-Americans to compete at the Winter Olympics for the men’s bobsled team. He was also only the fourth American to compete in both Summer and Winter Olympics. (Photo: Hulton Archive/Getty Images)
