RIO DE JANEIRO (AP\WDTN) – An Ohio State University wrestler made history at the Olympics on Sunday.
20-year-old Kyle Snyder became the youngest wrestler to win a gold medal in Olympic history.
Synder beat Khetag Goziumov of Azerbaijan 2-1 for gold at 97 kilograms during the men’s freestyle tournament.
The youngest American to win Olympic wrestling gold had been Henry Cejudo, who was less than three months older than Snyder is now when he finished first at the 2008 Beijing Games.
As the last day of competition winds up, the medal count shows the U.S. on top with 118.
