    Default Vote for Wrestlers for US Olympic Hall of Fame

    http://www.usolympichalloffame.com/?page_id=3

    John Smith, Bruce Baumgartner and Jeff Blatnick are among the nominees.
    Smith & Bruce easily belong having the two most accomplished international careers for US wrestlers ever.
    I have a hard time voting for Blatnick, probably one of the least respected Gold Medalists for the US.

    why not vote for blatnick? what would make him "least respected"?

    I am not trying to bash Blatnick, but I feel that there are only so many slots that will be open ever to wrestlers in the US Olympic HOF and Blatnick is not one of the most deserving.
    Along with being a horrible announcer, he won gold in a boycotted year (1984) and I don't think he has any other accomplishments on the world level to back it up. If someone has evidence to refute this I would like to hear it.

    coming back from cancer has to be woth a lot. plus the boycott argumenet is weak because he beat an accomplished guy (with four world medals, one championship) in the finals.
