  • Shani Davis Turns Down a Chance at the Olympic Sendoff He Deserves

    GANGNEUNG, South Korea – It ended with a duck and a dodge, which was sad. Shani Davis deserved better than that. He finished seventh in what was probably the final race of his Olympic career, and then he ducked out of the rink without walking though the mixed zone so that he could dodge the media. As athlete crimes go, this was a parking ticket. Not a big deal. But by doing it, Davis robbed himself. Maybe he doesn’t care about a grand sendoff. More likely, he didn’t trust us to give him one, and that is what is sad:...

    Remember the story we told you yesterday about how black Olympian Shani Davis was angry that a coin flip decided that white Olympian Erin Hamlin would be the Team USA flag bearer in today’s opening ceremony? Well, the story got worse. Davis skipped the parade of athletes over the entirely fair process to decide a tie:

    It’s been less than a week and I’ve already found something else the SJWs have ruined: the Olympics. It seems there was a bit of a kerfuffle over who would carry the flag for Team USA in the opening ceremony. The honor is determined by a vote of the the eight American winter sports federations that participate in the Olympics. This year their vote split 4-4 for Erin Hamlin (female, white) and Shani Davis (male, black). In the event of a tie the US Olympic committee has previously established a procedure whereby the designated flag bearer is determined by the...
  • Black Fathers Once Warned Us About Acting Like Shani Davis Types

    Some of us who actually were privileged to have black fathers in the home were at one point told to do the best we could in life as to open the doors for those who followed behind us. This is clearly not the case today and the latest example comes from the 2018 Winter Olympics. How is Shani Davis' example of over-inflated ego, entitled, racebaiting, spoiled brat behavior going to make it easier for a future black Olympic hopeful to be looked at with anything but hesitation; not because he or she may or may not be a qualified athlete...

    Shani Davis, the churlish speed skating star who's no stranger to Olympic controversy, blasted Team USA team on Thursday after he lost a coin flip to determine the flag-bearer for Friday's Opening Ceremony of the Winter Games. Erin Hamlin, who in 2014 became the first American woman to ever medal in luge, won the honor to lead the U.S. delegation into Pyeongchang. On Friday morning, Martin Rogers of USA TODAY Sports reported that Davis is not expected to walk in the Opening Ceremony. The 35-year-old, who's won four Olympic medals and was the first black athlete to ever win gold...

    Without Davis, Hedrick can't equal Heiden February 16, 2006 BY JAY MARIOTTI Sports Columnist TURIN, Italy -- Chad Hedrick's dream of becoming the 21st-century Eric Heiden is over. Which means Shani Davis' national nightmare might be beginning. With Hedrick reduced to shouting in frustration Wednesday, an American team without Davis was eliminated in the quarterfinals of the team pursuit competition in Olympic long-track speedskating. That quickly, so went Hedrick's chances of equaling Heiden's legendary 1980 record of five Winter Games gold medals. And that ominously, the focus turned to Davis, the South Side native and 2005 world all-around champion. Saying...
