Cassius Clay stands on the podium after winning the gold medal at the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome. The U.S. boxing team of 2012 could’ve used Clay as they didn’t win a single medal despite sending 12 men to compete. SI’s Chris Mannix suggests that if the U.S. wants to turn things around in 2016, it needs to select a long-term coach, incorporate personal coaches and recruit past legends like Oscar de la Hoya to train the new crop of Olympic boxers.

being defined by something I do or by a relationship I have with somebody. It makes me uncomfortable when others opt for it. Like, letting a friend or a significant other define you is very unfair to me. Or being known as “the guy that did….”. I want to be known by people for who I am. Please don’t immediately just peg me as one thing or the other because I’d like to believe that I’m much much more. If you want to put what you do or who you hang out with in front of who you are as a person then I guess that’s fine but I think you are really selling yourself short and you will make it difficult for people to become close to you. It’s happened to me and I’m sure that I am not alone. Also if that relationship ends or if you decide to do something different you will be lost, at least that’s what I’ve noticed. Maybe I’m not making any sense, maybe I’m stupid, who knows? This is long as shit but if you read it; kudos.
