Lee Kemp on Wrestling Adversity On & Off The Mat | Ep. 146 BASCHAMANIA

    • Wrestling

Fun guest today as one of the greatest American wrestlers of all time joins the show: 3x NCAA Champ (4x Finalist) and 3x World Champ, Lee Kemp!  Lee has not only had an interesting career, but such an interesting life.  Adopted at a young age, Lee found wrestling to be his saving grace.  Although he didn't start wrestling until a later age than most, Lee quickly became one of the greatest American wrestlers of all time. 
He even beat the legendary Dan Gable at just 18 years old. Though achieving the highest of highs, Lee also had to usher in the lowest of lows as the adversity didn't stop coming. From the death of his father and an Olympic boycott costing him a shot at his dream to even ending up in a jail cell, Lee has had so many life lessons and it's great to learn from how he overcame and persevered. Be sure to also check out Lee's documentary "Wrestled Away: The Lee Kemp Story" and his book "Winning Gold" available at LeeKemp.com!
