    2-time Olympic champ, unbeaten in 3 years of NCAA wrestling for Oklahoma and I've heard from many that he was "unchallenged" in his collegiate career. But, when hearing about his international accolades, I never hear him referred to as "undefeated", which is what his fellow Olympian, Osamu Watanabe, was famed for being.

    Was there somewhere out there that beat him in international competition?

    off of here

    it reads

    i am going to guess that where it reads "While preparing for his second Olympic crown, spent two years as an assistant coach at OSU" he took a loss somewhere, unless he trained but didn't compete -- they would've mentioned something (?)

    Thanks Kenban Judan; my bad for not thanking you before!
