Nelson Mandela was elected president in South Africa in 1991. Although he is not alive today, he is still well known by the world but especially the black community. He devoted his life to have the equal rights with the white people in South Africa and thanks to his efforts, today, all races are equal. He was sentenced in prison and even tortured but he never gave up and won his case at the end!
United States President Ronald Reagan announced that they would not recognize the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus in 1985. Turks got the half of the Island by sending an army to the area and that area was belonging to Greeks before the events. However, Turks claimed that the island belongs to them which is possible because it is thousands of kilometers away from Greece but only dozens kilometers away from Turks where most of the citizens on the Island were Turks as well. The United States lost one of their castles in the Mediterranean Sea and therefore they claimed that they will not recognize it but today, they already recognized after the negotiations with Turkey.
The longest road tunnel in the world opened in St. Gotthard, Switzerland in 1973. The tunnel is 5.8 miles long (9.28 km) and still there is no longer tunnel than this one. In case you have not visited the tunnel yet and you have the opportunity to do so, we highly recommend you to do it since the environment in the tunnel is highly weird that you need to experience it at least once before you die.
Mohammed Ali (Cassius Clay) won the Olympic medal in 1960. He was known as Cassius Clay in those times because he did not convert to Islam back in those days. After Mohammad Ali converted to Islam, he was banned from the games but soon the banned lifted and the legend came back to the rings to continue his legacy. Sadly, he is not alive anymore.
With the agreement signed in New Hampshire, the Russian-Japanese War ended in 1905. This was the first battle between these countries and luckily it ended before more people lost their lives. There was no winning side in this battle, however, Japan lost more soldiers.
