Shedding a Little Olympic Light on Boxer Aamir Khan

Obtaining a medal in the Olympic is a great achievement in an athlete career but for the British professional boxer of Pakistani descent carrying the Olympic torch through old neighborhood of Bolton was a thrill of a lifetime.  According to BBC News,  Khan shared, “I think the last boxer to carry a torch was Muhammad Ali, so it’s a great honour for me.”

“I have grown up on these streets and that’s what makes it so special, that this is the town where I was born.”

Ex-world champion Khan, became the youngest British Olympic boxing medallist when he won silver at the 2004 Athens
