CONGRATUATIONS SHANI !!!
ICE Skaters salute you for another record-breaking 2013-14 season:
- Grand World Cup Champion!
- World Cup 1000m Champion!
- 58th World Cup Win!
Olympic Champion speedskater Shani Davis inspired the creation of Inner City Excellence (ICE) following the 2002 Olympic Winter Games.
In concert with his former youth coach ("Coach Nat"), Shani sparked into existence a novel program rooted in Olympism that has served thousands of young skaters in several US cities.
Olympians in Life
Davis connects with ICE skaters each year, including after winning Olympic Gold in 2006, again in 2010, and in 2012 when he headed Skate of the Union, an all-skate event in Washington, DC, uniting skaters of all disciplines & backgrounds.
Shani's unassuming participation serves as a bright example of Olympism for ICE youth everywhere.
Shani continues to serve as the Honorary Chairman of Inner City Excellence and continues to inspire and support ICE youth of all backgrounds in their daily pursuit of personal (and skating) excellence.
Shani's example of personal and athletic excellence - his Olympic Spirit - inspires ICE skaters and youth everywhere on a daily basis.
THANK YOU, SHANI!
