It's a historic day south of the border. Not only does Wednesday mark the official end to Donald Trump's presidency, but what many hope is a new era for the United States under the leadership of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Here are some reactions from the world of sports on a historic Jan. 20.

The Warriors released a touching tribute to Harris Wednesday morning and gifted her a special No. 49 city edition jersey with her name on the back.
"I'm not saying that you've got to put this up in your office at the White House, but it probably would be a good idea," said Steph Curry in the video.
"I will proudly, proudly display this in the office of the vice president of the United States, an office I am about to occupy," Harris said.
The Warriors will be wearing those same Oakland inspired jerseys as they take the court Wednesday night against the San Antonio Spurs.
Sports world must continue to push for change
Sports are all about resilience in the face of adversity and pushing through difficulty, Shireen Ahmed writes, and fighting injustice is no different. But we cannot be misled to think that we can pull back and relax now that Trump is out of office.

Biden looking to sports for reunification
"Through personal tragedy, a 36-year Senate career and two terms as vice president, Joe Biden has viewed athletes and athletic competition as sources of virtue, uplift and common ground. He credits sports with instilling the confidence to overcome his stutter and, at times, delivering his own family a sense of healing."
