2008 U.S. Olympic Team members Daniel Cormier and Steve Mocco are Oklahoma State wrestling alumni. So was Jack VanBebber. Seventy-six years ago, VanBebber, the Cowboys' second-ever three-time NCAA champ, won the gold medal at the 1932 Olympics. In his memoir, A Distant Flame, VanBebber tells his inspiring story of overcoming adversity -- including a near-fatal accident, and the economic hardships of the Great Depression -- to achieve greatness.
