Kyle Snyder – Wrestling

  • Snyder collected his second World title on Saturday defeating Russia’s Abdusalim Sadulaev in the gold medal match. Snyder’s win propelled Team USA to earning the World title at the World Wrestling Championships in Paris.
  • Snyder, only 21, already has three World and Olympic titles. It is fitting that it was Snyder who won the clutch match to give the USA only its third-ever World Team Title in freestyle wrestling.
