    Yes. Wilfred Dietrich from Germany, he of the famous Christ Taylor supay, did it several times and medalled in both. Chris Taylor did it as well, as have others but I'm not sure of their names.

    The famous sup was in '72 right? I never realized how close Dietrich was to winning double golds in '60.

    A career that spanned 5 Olympics competively wrestling double styles is pretty amazing

    Not the Olympics, but South Africa's Richard Adinall wrestled in both styles in last year's worlds. He didn't medal.
