Carmelo Anthony, Alex Rodriguez, Dara Torres: All elite athletes, all Latinos — which isn't to say that they aren't true-blue Americans. It's hard to think of a more quintessential expression of pride than when Oscar de la Hoya draped himself in the US flag after winning a gold medal in 1992. Of course, he also donned a Mexican flag. Because, you know, it's complicated.
V as in Victor celebrates that fluid sense of identity and recounts Latino success from the triple jump to the Triple Crown, from world records to the World Series.
Bill Vourvoulias has worked at ESPN Publishing, Newsweek, and The New Yorker. He comes by his Latino through his mom, a Guatemalan Mexican, and his sports crazy from his father. His surname, too: If Bill had a nickel for every time he heard his father say “V as in Victor…” he'd still have a hard time spelling it himself.
