Is this the first black person to win gold in the Winter Olympics or first African American to do so?

The Salt Lake City Olympic Winter Games saw the expansion of the Olympic programme to 78 events, including the return of skeleton and the introduction of women's bobsleigh. Athletes from a record 18 nations earned gold medals. Canadian teams won both the men's and women's ice hockey tournaments. Ole Einar Bjoerndalen earned gold medals in all four biathlon events and Samppa Lajunen in all three Nordic combined competitions. Alpine skier Janica Kostelic won three gold medals and one silver. Simon Ammann scored unexpected victories in both individual ski jump events. Speedskater Claudia Pechstein earned her third straight gold medal in the 5,000m race and also won at 3,000m. By taking the silver medal in singles luge, Georg Hackl became the first person in Olympic history to earn a medal in the same individual event five times in a row. Short track speedskater Yang Yang (A) became the first Chinese athlete to win a gold medal at the Winter Games. Competing in the women’s bobsleigh, Vonetta Flowers became the first black athlete to earn winter gold, while ice hockey player Jarome Iginla followed as the first black male winner.

I think its the first African american person to win ANYTHING in the "white" Winter Olympics...just ask Bryant Gumble, Mike Wilbohn and most other black commentators or sports writers. :rolleyes: Lack of "color" has equalled lack of interest. Cheers to these ladies for a great accomplishment.

The key is an individual gold, Flowers won in bobsled which is considered a team event.

Did anyone else catch the interview with Shanni Davis after the race? The guy has the personality of a pit bull with a pair of vise grips on his nuts. Next to him Tiger Woods is "Mr. Charisma."

That interview kicked ass.That was so awesome. Melissa Stark was totally befuddled.

Something about him, aside from my weird subconscious tendency to pull for black guys over white guys with everything else being equal, just made me really happy to see him win. The way he dealt with it afterwards, and the fact that it was like a big **** you to everyone who called him out for not participating in the team event, just made it all the better.

Joey Cheek rocks, as well. Not preachy or pouty, just putting his money where his mouth is, literally.

I hope Davis kicks Hedrick's ass in the 1500.
