Larry Owings vs. Dan Gable at the 1970 NCAA Wrestling Championships
If you look hard enough, YouTube inevitably yields some very interesting and historic footage. A few minutes ago, I tripped over this vintage footage of Dan Gable of the University of Iowa and Larry Owings of Washington University in the 1970 NCAA Men’s Wrestling Championships. It would be the only loss of Gable’s collegiate career.
There’s no audio, as the person who put together the video simply set up an old projector and trained a video camera on the screen. You can even hear the projector running in the background, which only adds to the charm. The video comes in at a little more than nine minutes, but I think it’s worth your time.
