With his outspoken courage and refusal to back down on his convictions, Ali inspired a generation of African-Americans to believe they could change their country. Now regarded as one of the greatest cultural icons of all time, he redefined what it meant to be an athlete in the twentieth century. This photo of Ali was taken during training for the 1960 Summer Olympic Games in Rome.
'Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even.' - MUHAMMAD ALI
