Uploaded on Mar 3, 2010A highlight I made of the University Of Iowa Hawkeyes Wrestling Team. I believe it to be the best one available right now that does not have music from the stone age.
I'm a wrestler from Massachusettes and a die hard Hawkeye's fan. IN BRANDS WE TRUST

The Iowa Hawkeyes wrestling program is one of the most storied in NCAA Division I athletics. Based in Iowa City, Iowa, the University of Iowa Hawkeyes are a member of the Big Ten Athletic Conference. The Hawkeyes are currently the reigning NCAA Wrestling Champions. Iowa is second in NCAA history with 23 national championships, all of which have come since 1975. Sports Illustrated recently named the Iowa program one of the top sports dynasties of the 20th century.
The course of the marathon race for the London 1948 Olympic Games took a different approach to the one chosen for the London 1908 Olympics. While in 1908 the race went from the royal residence at Windsor Castle until the Olympic stadium in White City, this time, the race began and ended at Wembley stadium. Still, despite the changes, the excitement remained the same as seen during London's first Olympic experience.
Out of the forty-one racers who started the race, Etienne Gailly of Belgium was the first one to enter the stadium for the final lap. However -- as had happened in the 1908 Olympics with Dorando Pietri -- Gailly arrived visibly exhausted and near to collapse. Having learnt from Dorando's story 40 years earlier, no one intervened to avoid the Belgian runner's disqualification.
