Kyle Snyder’s gold medal draws praise from Ohio State coaches, players and recruits
Ohio State wrestler Kyle Snyder became the youngest United States wrestler to win an Olympic gold medal when he beat Khetag Gazyumov of Azerbaijan 2-1 in the 97 kg (213.8 pounds) freestyle final.
His win brought forth an overwhelming reaction from members of the Ohio State football program, many of whom weighed in following his historic win at the 2016 Olympics.
