Kurt Angle Wants To Make a Comeback

Kurt Angle, who is probably best known for his exploits in the WWF, wants to make a comeback to real wrestling. That’s right: the 43 year old is going to attempt to make the 2012 US Olympic team. Angle is actually an incredibly accomplished wrestler, winning the heavyweight division of the freestyle wrestling event at the 1996 Games in Atlanta.

Angle also has numerous other wrestling exploits, winning a Junior World Championship, an NCAA national championship and the 1995 World Championship.

The United States had one medal winner, a bronze from Adam Wheeler, but that was in Greco Roman wrestling. Angle will be attempting to make the team in freestyle, where no American finished in the top 18 in 2008. He’ll have to win the qualifying event in April in Iowa City to make it, but he seems optimistic about doing just that.
