Dan had been out of competition for a while at that point, and was considering a run at the Olympics.
this was the last time Dan wrestled in competition.

and that was premature takedown awarded by the ref in the 3rd.

Dan Gable must've been pissed but still stood on the podium as 2nd place, classy guy

how good is this Lee Kemp guy?

very talented..only lost a couple matches in his entire NCAA career, won a couple titles. And it was Gable who inspired him. He literally modeled his workouts differently and changed his mindset because Dan Gable told him that anybody could beat anybody if they put in enough work to believe it. So he watched Gable's workouts and tried to bring that level of intensity to everything he did to prepare for wrestling...lifting, drilling, wrestling, running...all of it like Gable.
