Olympic Champion Kendall Cross teaching at American University, Sunday, October 25, 2015
Kendall Cross, a 1996 Freestyle Olympic Champion, will be teaching a clinic on Sunday, October 25th in the American University wrestling room. The clinic starts at 9:00 AM and is limited to the first 30 participants but is open to all wrestlers.
The Kendall Cross style of wrestling is one of most wide-open, exciting styles of competition ever seen in American wrestling. After completing his high school career in Mustang, Okla., by winning a state championship, Kendall went on to Oklahoma State where he became a three-time All-American and the 1989 NCAA Champion. His first success at the International level came in 1988 when he became the Espoir World Cup Champion, setting the stage for his pursuit of Olympic Gold. In 1992, he was the only freestyle wrestler on the U.S. Olympic team not ranked number one at his weight at the beginning of the year. He finished sixth at the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games. The road to the Olympic Gold would be no easier in 1996. His championship series with Terry Brands at the Olympic trials served as one of the most spectacular displays of wrestling ever seen in the US. The trials victory over Brands sent him on to the Atlanta Olympic Games, where his dominating performance and "Kendall Cross Style" earned him a gold medal.
This clinic is an incredible and rare opportunity to learn from one of the legends of our sport.
The clinic will consist of two sessions 9:00-11:00 AM, and 12:00-2:00 PM, is sponsored by Michael Lerner/Meridian Homes, and costs $150.
