Pele A Soccer legend

Pele was/is the worlds greatest soccer player and was the first colored man to defeat the world.
Pele is from Brazil. He grew up there and played in the Olympics for Brazil.
Pele once said, "Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do".

I believe that out of the 8 Themes in World History, Pele belongs in the cultural interaction and revolution area. He belongs in revolutions because he changed the ways of soccer because he was the first colored man to play soccer for a professional team. He was also the first colored man to go to the Olympics for soccer. Pele also belongs into the cultural interaction theme because he made a point that not just whites can play professional soccer and that colored people can make a difference too.
