The upcoming issue of Jet Magazine talks about the 2008 Beijing Games and the Black athletes to watch at the Olympics:

Tennis champs Venus and Serena Williams, basketball star Dwyane Wade, and track and field great Tyson Gay are just a few of the world’s elite Black athletes ready to compete on the grandest stage on the globe at the Olympics. The best African-American sports stars are prepared to vie for the gold there when the international multi-sport competition opens Aug. 8 in China’s capital, Beijing. For 21 days, they’ll join more than 10,000 other men and women representing over 200 nations, all competing for the ultimate prize of Olympic glory.

Peep more of Dwyane Wade on the cover of DirectTV Access Magazine below.

    I can’t lie, I’ve been disappointed so often by black Olympic heroes getting their medals stripped because of drug usage. The straw that broke the camels back (and my heart) was Marion Jones, though. I’m still going to cheer, but something will always be missing for me.

  • Lady Architect

    Yall know these athletes are about to dominate the Olympics and leave everyone there crying.

  • http://www.google.com Man, I just don't care
