With great power comes great responsibility. Every sportsman can relate to this statement. Even though many have the notion that the only thing athletes do is perform well in their respective sports. But, in reality, that is not the case, as many athletes tend to use their grandeur and position to contribute to something nobler than their professional careers. Muhammad Ali has been an example of what an athlete can do to give back to society and the changes they can bring with their influence. Muhammad Ali’s reach goes way beyond his boxing ring appearances.
Ali was able to achieve a lot throughout his life. And his contribution to making a better society and giving back to the people who are less fortunate is commendable. Athletes who take it upon themselves to follow in the footsteps of the boxing legend and help society are awarded the Muhammad Ali Sports Humanitarian Award in appreciation of their important contributions. And, now, an American power couple is getting praise from the fans for getting the prestigious award.

@user-eq9zc3me7i is a strong follower of the power couple. And believes that they are role models for the younger generation. He commented, “The humility, thoughtfulness and love that these two have for each other is so apparent. I could not be prouder of them. Wonderful role models for our young people and so inspiring for an elder like myself. I suspect Ali would love these two because the one thing about the champ was that he truly loved and respected all people just as these two clearly do also. “
@packfan3917 summarized the credibility of their work with a single statement, he wrote “Great athletes on the court but better people off the court!”
