WATERLOO, Iowa—The National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum will host a special autograph signing with Dan Gable on Friday, March 30 from 3-5 p.m. The signing will take place during USA Wrestling's Folkstyle Nationals held at the UNI Dome in Cedar Falls.

This is USA Wrestling's final event of the folkstyle season, taking place on March 30 through April 1 at the UNI Dome. It is also the first stage of the Triple Crown, which is made up of the Folkstyle Nationals, and the Freestyle and Greco-Roman Nationals.

Gable is arguably the greatest athlete and coach ever. In 1972 he won a gold medal at the Munich Olympics without surrendering a point. As the head coach at the University of Iowa he led the Hawkeyes to 15 NCAA team titles in 21 years, compiling a 355-21-5 dual meet record.

The UNI Dome was where Dan Gable won his final NCAA tournament as the head coach of the Iowa Hawkeyes in 1997, setting the record for most points scored at 170.

That National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum is located at 303 Jefferson St. in Waterloo. All are welcome to attend this special autograph signing.
