Maybe a mention of Major Taylor, the first African-American World Cycling champion that had great success in Paris and Europe, would be suitable. A great athlete and gentleman that overcame great prejudice in the USA but was welcomed in Paris.

The 1st century Greek geographer Strabo's Leucotia
(Lutetia) as mentioned by Rabelais, "which in Greek

etc. and ris-laughter, smile, reef-of-sails, sweetbread) is a
splendid place, one must admit, that could even be more superb, but for its too much reliance (the country) on nuclear energy, which transmits a transparent death-pall
over all it touches.
