Terrific read.....bringing back some very good memories. Many of the people in the 72, 76, and 80's trials I either have met, trained with, wrestled against, or knew by reputation. Really fun for me to learn some of their stories of struggle and success. I cant relate to much of the success stores...especially at the national/Olympic level.....but I certainly can relate to some of the struggles! Still, I wouldn't trade those years for anything, and i'd do it all over again in a minute if given the chance. Fun reading about the "legends" from the early years as well.
