Dan Gable 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki

Gable grew up in Waterloo, Iowa. When he was 15 years old, a teenager from his neighborhood murdered Gable’s 19-year-old sister. Although Gable has called his sister’s death his “biggest loss,” he did not allow the tragedy to affect his focus on wrestling. Instead, he thought of it as a reason to train with even more determination: “The more you can settle into focusing on what you have and what you would like to do and where you want to go — a positive point of view — the quicker things turn around and positive things start to happen.” In 1974, Dan Gable married Kathy Carpenter and the couple has four daughters: Jenni, Annie, Molly and Mackenzie. Gable served as the University of Iowa’s head wrestling coach for 21 years. As Iowa’s all-time winningest coach, Gable compiled a career record of 355-21-2, all at Iowa. He coached 152 all-Americans, 45 national champions, 106 Big Ten champions and 10 Olympians, including four gold medallists. Gable’s teams won the Big Ten title every year he was the head of the Iowa program. He had a winning percentage of .932 and captured nine consecutive NCAA Championships (1978-86). That equals the longest streak of national titles won by any school in any sport, and is also held by Yale golf (1905-13) and Southern Cal track (1935-43). Gable coached many United States teams in international freestyle competition. He is a three-time Olympic head coach (1980, 1984 and 2000).

He was an assistant on the 1989 World Team that competed in Switzerland. Gable earned national fame in 1972 when he won a gold medal at the Summer Olympics. On his way to the championships, he did not surrender a point to any of his opponents. During his prep and college careers, Gable compiled an unbelievable record of 182-1. He was undefeated in 64 prep matches and 118-1 at Iowa State. He won his first 117 college matches, and NCAA record, before suffering his only defeat in the NCAA finals his senior year.
