Angle graduated form Clarion University in 1992 where he received his B. S.
in Geography. He first opened the eyes of the world with his gold-medal
performance at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. The Pittsburgh native
made his country proud, winning the 220-pound freestyle wrestling competition,
and the extraordinarily proud Angle surely won't let anyone forget about it!
Angle takes himself very seriously, calling himself the only "real
athlete" in the World Wrestling Federation. When the crowd is not behind
him, Kurt wonders how anyone could boo an Olympic gold medallist.
Recently, Kurt has been seen helping Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley, saying
that she is one of few people who have the three I?s: intelligence,
integrity and intensity.
The year 2000 also brought yet another crowning achievement to the head
of Angle as he won the annual King of the Ring Tournament against
Rikishi in the finals on June 25.
