All Gold Everything 

Davis’s Olympic games debut casted no doubts that he belonged on the U.S. Olympic team. At the 2006 Winter Olympics, Davis won the 1,000-meter race to become the first Black Olympian to win an individual gold medal in the Winter Games, and added a silver medal in the 1,500-meter event.
