This relates to black history month because Usain St Leo Bolt(Born August 21st, 1986) has made a ton of accomplishments as a sprinter. He is now a retired Jamaican sprinter. He is the first person to hold both the 100 meters and 200 meters world records since fully automatic time became mandatory. He also holds the world record as a part of the 4 × 100 meters relay. He is the reigning Olympic champion in these three events. Due to his dominance and achievements in sprint competition, he is widely considered to be the greatest sprinter of all time. His achievements as a sprinter have earned him the media nickname “Lightning Bolt”, and his awards include the IAAF World Athlete of the Year, Track & Field Athlete of the Year, and Laureus World Sportsman of the Year (four times). Bolt retired after the 2017 World Championships, when he finished third in his last solo 100m race. To me he is inspirational because he is an athlete and i’m an athlete as well and
My social issue is about a debate if sport leagues should do more to to prevent concussions and other sports injuries. It’s a social issue because there has been professional sport athletes that have gotten a specific head injury that has led them to an early retirement or even death and also because school across the country are working to make sports safer for the students who play sports. People such as a few NFL players say that they know the risks and that whatever happens after they get or give a hard hit and causes an injury that it just has to happen. (In regards to safety concerns) I believe that sport leagues,such ass professional and high school, should do more to prevent players from getting any kind of injury or concussion. I think its the best solution because it would make any sport much safer to play for anyone. Some PROS are that many professional players think they don’t have to worry about the risks and safety concerns in the sport they play. Some CONS are that many sport leagues such as the NFL are making changes to protect the players and make the sport somewhat more safe than usual.
