This week’s Community Spotlight feature is on Ali Ahmed, a professional boxer at Dreamland Boxing. Ali is the most disciplined athlete I’ve ever met – he stays in shape year round and never fluctuates in weight. In this interview, we discuss his amateur career, winning the Golden Gloves, the Olympic Trials, his diet, training during Ramadan, and adapting to the current shelter-in-place.
