Description

The fifth interview in our "Meet the World Team" series is with Kyle Snyder, the youngest member of Team USA, who will be competing at 97 kg in men's freestyle wrestling. The 19 year old made the World Team by upsetting 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist Jake Varner, and took 2nd place at the 2015 NCAA Championships, helping the Ohio State Buckeyes to win their first NCAA team title. In this interview, Snyder spoke about his reactions when he heard wrestling was threatened with being dropped from the Olympics back in 2013, and the importance of wrestling to stay together as a unit. There is no "I" in "team," and that is where the International Fraternity of Wrestlers steps in -- to create a team of wrestling supporters to ensure that wrestling never faces being booted from the Olympics again. About the Meet the 2015 World Team Video Series: The 2015 Wrestling World Championships take place September 7-12 in Las Vegas, NV. In the days leading up to the event, the International Fraternity of Wrestlers and the National Registry for Wrestling will be posting interviews with the members of USA Wrestling's men's freestyle, women's freestyle, and men's Greco-Roman world teams.
