2014, like all even years, possessed two of the biggest sporting events, both the Olympic Games and the Men’s World Cup. While the Winter Olympics doesn’t necessarily possess the same appeal as it’s Summer counterpart, this one, held in Sochi, was especially special from a geopolitical point of view, as Russia and Russia’s government would be under the microscope due to recent events between Ukraine and Russia.

Over time, we have had the opportunity to witness many exceptional Black sporting figures that have made history and have changed the world of sport for good. We should be privileged that we were able to witness this.
