Saturday is Shani Davis Day in Chicago and the Olympic gold medalist received a hero's welcome upon returning to his hometown. It's his first time back since winning the men's 1,500-meter race at the World All-Around Speedskating Championships in Calgary, and, the winter olympics. The athlete says that he's happy to be away from the critics who focused on a much-discussed rivalry between him and fellow speed skater Chad Hedrick. "When I won the medals, like through all the scrutiny, I think a lot of that stuff was ... what I’ve accomplished was kind of tainted." CBS2 also has video—just in case you want to see a very handsome Shani rockin' a new bald fade.
