If Burroughs wins a third world-level title this year...

Recommended Posts

He would be one of the top-5 American freestylers of the modern era. He'd still be behind Smith and Baumgartner, and be tied with one or more of Kemp, Jackson, and Schultz. Personally, I'd have him at #4, behind Kemp, and tied with Jackson and Schultz.

 

John Smith - 6 world-level golds

Bruce Baumgartner - 5 world-level golds*, 13 medals overall

Lee Kemp - 3 world-level golds**, 4 medals overall

Kevin Jackson - 3 world-level golds

Mark Schultz - 3 world-level golds*

 

*Including the 1984 Olympics

**Heavily favored during the boycotted 1980 Olympics
