My friends and I know the owners of a bar in NYC and we hang out there a lot. Well we were drinking there last night some friends of the owner come in. The owner told me that one of them won the gold medal at Athens in wrestling. He introduced me to him, and the guy claimed to be the 96 kg Greco Roman gold medalist. He is from Egypt. Wonder if anyone on the UG knows who he is.
He was a very cool guy. BSed with him about wrestling and congratulated him. Told him about Pride and UFC and how a lot of wrestlers turn to MMA. I could not believe how humble and down to earth he was.
On a side not, when I asked him what weight he said 211. Now, it did not register with me at first, but I immediately asked him if it was lpb's or kg's. He smiled and said lbp's. Then I realized how sumb my question was.
