By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing. - With the Olympic starting today, countless athletes are competing with the ultimate goal of winning a gold medal for their country.  In 1996, Wladimir Klitschko achieved that goal and won a Gold in Boxing for his country, Ukraine.  Although the medal meant a lot to Klitschko, he has since sold it for $1 million dollars.

In March of this year, Klitschko sold his medal. Recently quoted on CNN, Klitschko discussed why he sold his medal.

Wladimir Klitschko stated: "I did sell the medal in March and 100% of the funds, which is $1 million, went to the Klitschko Brothers Foundation... we care about education and sport, that is the key in any children's life."

Wladimir added: "If they have knowledge they can succeed with that in their adult life and sport gives them the rules... how to respect your opponent, how to respect the rules."
