See All The Hot Black Athletes About To Heat Up The Winter Olympics

Black excellence has never looked better.

Published January 22, 2018

Let’s face it, people of color haven't always been welcomed at the Olympics. Fortunately, over the years the games have become increasingly diverse, and it shows. 

While Black Summer Olympians like Usain Bolt and Flo Jo are praised for their physique, cold weather keeps winter Olympians from getting the shine they deserve. Luckily we can confirm that under all those masks and body suits, Black Winter Olympians are #bodygoals.

This year expect to see Black folks hailing from Jamaica to Nigeria bobsledding, skiing, and speed skating in Pyeongchang, South Korea, next month. Not only are they exceptionally talented, but they’re hot AF.
