Gable - Owings

Recommended Posts

I'd say Dake/Taylor was a better match.

 

"Ever" = most overused English word....EVER.

This was the most expected response ever!

 

Just didn't know who would post it.

The most interesting thing about the Owings Vs Gable match is that it was avenged.  By now I'd think most people would know that, but there are still so many that don't.  Gable wrestled Owings at the 1972 Olympic trials if I remember correctly.  Gable won I believe 7-1.  Owings was the only person throughout all of Gable's epic Gold medal run to score a point on him.  Pretty impressive all things considered. 

I'm almost 100% positive that there is no footage of that match. No film, or pictures. Wish their was.  Love to see it.

You can watch the match on Youtube. Just search Dan Gable vs Larry Owings and if I am not mistaken the match is included in the Dan Gable documentary.

 

 

 

I think he was referring to the Freestyle match between the two.
