Kurt Angle won the gold medal in freestyle wrestling at the 1996 Olympic Games. Angle, a two-time NCAA Division I Heavyweight Wrestling Champion while attending Clarion University, had previously won the gold medal in freestyle wrestling at the 1995 World Wrestling Championships. Angle is one of only four individuals to complete an amateur wrestling Grand Slam (junior nationals, NCAA, World Championships, Olympics). Following his Olympic gold medal run, Angle turned to professional wrestling, first with WWF/WWE and then with TNA Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling. Between WWF/WWE, TNA and Japan, Angle has won 13 world championships and 21 total championships. Angle stands as the only professional wrestler in history to win the WWE, WCW, TNA, and IWGP world championships in his career. Wrestling Observer Newsletter named Angle the Wrestler of the Decade for the 2000s, and in 2013, he was the second-ever inductee into the TNA Hall of Fame.
