Amir Khan Training
Teenage boxing sensation Amir Khan is so young the first Olympics he can remember watching was the last one! Amir was a 13-year-old schoolboy when Audley Harrison won gold in Sydney four years ago.
The precocious Bolton-based fighter stepped into the over-sized shoes of big Audley as Britain's only representative in the boxing competition in Athens.
And not only did his astonishing performances light up the Games - but they bagged him a stunning silver medal too! Not 18 until December, Amir is Britain's youngest Olympic boxer since Colin Jones in 1976. And although he didn't quite manage to strike gold in the lightweight division, Amir certainly came of age!
The teenager had thought he was too young to compete in Athens and had set his sights on the next Olympics in Beijing in 2008. He WAS too young to fight in the 2004 British senior
championships but the Olympic rules revealed he could make the trip to Greece.
