A Young Athlete's Journey to GoldBook - 2016
Arthur Biyarslanov's journey to competitive boxing has been full of obstacles. As a young Muslim refugee, he fled with his family from Chechnya and eventually landed in Toronto where he became the "Chechen Wolf", a school-aged soccer star. A broken leg interrupted his soccer career and he took up boxing, only to find that it was his greatest love. Now a gold medal winner at the 2015 Pan Am Games, the talented boxer will be on a quest for the ultimate gold medal at the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
