Kurt Angle Wants To Try Out For The Olympics Again
Kurt Angle says that he’s considering another try at the Olympic games and he’s dead serious.
“It’s not just this old man trying to lash out to get publicity,” Angle told WTAE Channel 4 Action News on Friday. “It’s about really making the team and making a point that, you know what, the 40s is not old. It’s the new young. I feel really good at 42, and I might be making a statement that him and I are going to start training for the Olympics and go after the U.S. Open, the Olympic team trials, and then the Olympics,” Angle said.
“Everyone asks me, ‘How can you do all of these things?’ And I always tell them I’ll rest when I die,” Angle said. “I don’t rest very much. I like to do things, I like to accomplish things, and I have a passion for everything that I do, including pro wrestling, and I miss the Olympic wrestling.”
“But if we’re going to make this (Olympic) commitment, we’re going to do it, and it starts in August,” he said.
