Great Olympic Moment

The greatest moment in Olympic history was the 1996 opening ceremony because boxing gold medallist and sufferer from Parkinson’s disease Muhammad Ali lit the torch that would stay lit all throughout the Atlanta Olympics games. I think it’s both great and inspirational, mainly because it was such a struggle for Ali due to the disease. Reading about this event made me feel very inspired. It showed me that Ali hasn’t let the disease stop him from playing a part in the Olympics.

Short and sweet.

Add in some links at the bottom that you found useful.

Is there a you tube video of the moment?
