“Muhammad became one of the most well-known people to ever walk the Earth and has left a legacy of humanitarianism and athleticism that has inspired billions of people,” the mayor added in a statement, celebrating achievements of Ali, who passed away on June 3, 2016.
By choosing to rename the airport for Muhammad Ali, a world-renowned humanitarian honored as a United Nations Messenger of Peace and an athlete honored as Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the 20th Century, we as a community are honoring his legacy and celebrating this global icon who is a fellow Louisvillian.
This tells the world how proud we are to associate ‘The Greatest’ with not only our great city, but our great airport.
In a tribute to the boxing legend, Muhammad Ali, the international airport in his hometown Louisville, a city in the US state of Kentucky, has been renamed after him.
