Don't think Henderson got Olympic silver. Matt Lindland did get silver though.
Yep, Hendo didn't medal in the Olympics, but he won gold at Pan-Ams.
Ogawa won gold at Worlds, and silver at '92 Olympics.
Still, pretty amazing collection of talent at that show.
You sure crocop won a k1 gp? I thought he was a pretty average k1 guy
He won this year, believe it or not. The final was in Croatia. It was a show called "K-1 Grand Prix" anyway :)
Re: the glory days of K-1, Cro Cop reached the finals in '99 I believe, so I wouldn't say he was "average." He was always a bad dude.
