Lee Kemp is one of the finest wrestlers the world has ever known. A three-time NCAA Division I champion at Wisconsin and a four-time finalist, Kemp won three World championships and four World medals.

Kemp has a new book called Winning Gold: Success Secrets of a World Champion available at LeeKemp.com where he breaks down stories and nuggets that he's penned over the years that helped him be a success on the mat and in business.

On Episode 49 of the World Wrestling Resource podcast, we go deep into the mind of Kemp and talk about life growing up as an adopted African-American moving from the city to rural Ohio, wrestling Dan Gable, his attempts at the Olympics, the 1980 boycott as well as race and its role in his life and in the sport of wrestling.

Kemp also shares stories he's never told on the record about wrestling a young Dave Schultz in front of absolutely no one to make an Olympic team — one that never competed.

The World Wrestling Resource has a slew of resources for wrestlers and coaches from all levels and information about the products can be found at www.worldwrestlingresource.com.
