He holds the distinctions of being the youngest Olympic Gold medalist and the youngest World Champion in American wrestling history.
Snyder is also the youngest wrestler ever to win the World, NCAA, and Olympic championships in the same year — a triple crown of American wrestling that had not been accomplished in a generation until he completed his sweep at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Snyder, nicknamed “Snyderman”, became the first Olympic Gold Medalist to return to college and win an NCAA title, clinching his second consecutive NCAA heavyweight title in 2017 despite tearing cartilage in his chest in the quarter-finals and being out-weighed by upwards of 40 pounds throughout the tournament.
2016 Olympic champion Kyle Snyder captured his third career World Championships gold medal, with a victory in the finals at 97 kg.in the last match of the 2022 World Championships in Stark Arena on Sunday night.
Snyder dominated 2019 U23 World silver medalist Batyrbek Tsakulov of Slovakia in the finals, 6-0.
Snyder scored the only takedown in the first period to lead 2-0, then got a point when Tsakulov could not score on the shot clock, for a 3-0 lead at the break. In the second period, Snyder forced three step outs and did not allow any points.
Snyder has now won eight World or Olympic medals, winning a medal every year starting in 2015.
He has six World medals and two Olympic medals, including a 2016 Olympic gold and 2015, 2017 an 2022 World titles, 2018 and 2021 World silver medals and a 2019 World bronze medal.

To begin his collegiate wrestling career, Snyder accepted a scholarship from the Ohio State Buckeyes, helping them to an NCAA team championship as a true freshman by finishing as runner-up to a fifth-year senior, Iowa State’s Kyven Gadson, in the national finals.
A few weeks later he rebounded from this loss with remarkable resilience: Snyder defeated returning Olympic gold medalist Jake Varner for a chance to represent the U.S. on its 2015 World Team, then became the youngest World Champion in American wrestling history by dethroning the reigning World Champion.
Snyder continued his extraordinary run by returning to Ohio State and rallying for an overtime victory over NC State University’s Nick Gwiazdowski, the returning back-to-back heavyweight national champion.
Even giving away more than 30 pounds Snyder was able to end Gwiazdowski’s 88-match win streak and earn his first individual NCAA title as a true sophomore.
A few months later Snyder would win his historic gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics — capping-off his unprecedented streak of winning wrestling’s three most prestigious championships in succession before his 21st birthday, defeating the man holding each title along the way.
