Bode Miller 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics

Bode Miller is an example of athletic success that was created out of simplicity. Raised in a New Hampshire home without electricity, Miller truly embodies the fact that superior athleticism is something created out of dedication, hard work and belief in self.

Not to mention, he has done what many athletes never do: he took a full year out to heal and regain complete strength to be strong for the Sochi Olympics.

Shani Davis is a man to be remembered. Not only is he the first African American to medal in an individual sport in the Winter Olympics, but he is also a competitor to be reckoned with.
