  • 10 of the Greatest Olympic Moments in History

    A sportsperson can delight by doing things better than everyone else but none can thrill so viscerally as the brilliant oddball who comes along once in an era and does things that no one else had even thought of. To successfully defy normality is to redefine it. Muslims traveling to Rio Olympics 2016 can anticipate great moments of achievements from the competing athletes. Here’s a look at some of the ten greatest moments in Olympic history that will never be forgotten. 1) Alice Coachman is the First African American Woman to win a Gold Medal - 1946 High jumper Alice Coachman was the first African American woman to join the U.S. track and field team, competing at the London Games. And she crushed it! Not only did she set an Olympic record for high jump, she also became the first African American woman in Olympic history to win gold. 2) First Olympics on Television - Rome, 1960 As the first Olympics ever to be televised and include a brand endorsement by an athlete, the Rome Games ushered in a new era of commercialism and changed the way the world viewed its Olympians. 3) Ethiopian Athlete Abibe Bakila Achieves World Record - Olympics in Rome, 1960  It’s not the shoes that make the runner, as Ethiopian athlete Abibe Bakila proved at the 1960 Olympics in Rome. Unable to find a suitable pair of shoes prior to the marathon, Bakila ran barefoot, leading his competitors to write him off. But barefoot running is how Bakila trained so he was right at home running on Rome's ancient roads. Bakila took home the gold, not only becoming the first black African to win the event but also setting a world record. 4) Olga Korbut at Munich Olympics - 1972 A young Soviet athlete - Olga Korbut - stunned the crowd, winning three gold medals at the gymnastics events and pulling off a move that became known as 'the Korbut flip'. 5) Carl Lewis's Four Gold Medals - Los Angeles Olympics, 1984 Carl Lewis competed in the ambitious quadruple of 100m, 200m, long jump and 4x100m and he won gold in all of them!  6) Dream Team Play the Olympics - Barcelona, 1992 The 1992 U.S. Men's Olympic basketball team, nicknamed the "Dream Team" for its impressive line-up of the biggest names in basketball - Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, and Patrick Ewing, to name a few was the first time active NBA players were recruited for an Olympic team. They won the Gold medal winning all their games. Today, the Dream Team is still widely celebrated as the greatest team ever assembled in any sport. 7) Games Turn 100 with Muhammad Ali - Atlanta, 1996 Former heavyweight boxing champion and Olympic gold medalist Muhammad Ali lit the Olympic flame during the opening ceremony of the 1996 Atlanta Games. 8) Phelps Takes Most Gold Ever - Beijing, 2008 Champion American swimmer Michael Phelps and his teammates set a new world record in the medley relay event, awarding Phelps his eighth gold medal (the most won in a single Olympic Games). 9) Usain Bolt Stuns the World - Beijing, 2008 Usain Bolt's 100m and 200m gold wins in Beijing launched a remarkable career and rescued sprinting from controversy. Bolt's 100m run was so thrilling, so astonishingly emphatic, and yet so casual, it stunned the world! 10) Gabby Douglas becomes a National Role Model -  London, 2012 Gabby Douglas is currently training for the 2016 after becoming the first African American to win the individual all-around gold in 2012. We think two gold medals are in line and we can't wait to see this gracious, talented athlete compete in the Rio Olympics! Click here for more information about Rio Olympics 2016 ...
