So it has an asterisk because it wasn’t marketed well? I don’t see how that impacts how real the gold is. 

do 1984 Olympic medalists have asterisk?

Yes. The entirety of the best team in the world wasn’t there. 

Stieber literally beat a Russian world medalist and a Georgian world champion in his run. He had the best guys in the world at that weight. It just happened to occur a few months later. 

If Stieber wrestled mediocre guys I’d agree with you, but he didn’t.

What is an Olympic Redshirt?  Going to Denver to train at the Olympic training center?

No. They can take a year off of college wrestling (without losing a year of eligibility) to train for the upcoming Olympics. But they don't have to got the the OTC to train.
