Morning Mindbender for Monday 2/19/18
George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and William Howard Taft are all enshrined in this sport's Hall of Fame.
They are all in the Outstanding American section of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame. All four were wrestlers when they were growing up and Abraham Lincoln is said to have only been defeated once. William Howard Taft was a two-time undergraduate wrestling champion at Yale University. Several other presidents were also wrestlers when they were young but only these four are in the Hall of Fame. Happy President’s Day!
