Adam Saitiev- 2000
Is it just me, or is Adam Saitiev's Olympic championship in 2000 one of the most impressive feats in wrestling history?
He bumps WAY up in weight since his brother is at 76 kg, comes out of an insanely deep pool of Russian competitors (7x world champ Khadartsev, Olympic champ Magomedov, future world champ Sajidov, not sure if Gatsalov was around yet) and has his way with the field in the Olympics, pinning the defending world champ.
I know people talk about Yarygin, Gable, Brands and so on as the greatest Olympic runs in history, but I think Adam needs to be up there too.
