Modern humans are actually a subspecies of homo sapiens. We are homo sapiens sapiens. All of the other homo sapiens groups died out or were overtaken by our subspecies through competition. All of the people alive today descended from a group of homo sapiens that first started to migrate out of Africa about 70,000 years ago.
