Joining the three Olympic Gold Medal Club – Boxer Félix Savón

Félix Savón arrived in Sydney with the experience from two previous Olympic gold medals at both the Barcelona and Atlanta 1996 Olympic Games.


This time the desired Sydney 2000 Olympic gold medal would not only consolidate Savón as an amateur boxing icon; but also make him one of the only three boxers to win three Olympic gold medals alongside fellow Cuban Teófilo Stevenson and Hungarian László Papp.


This was a fight which surely defined Savón’s role in Olympic boxing history.
