If you don't know it by now, Kyle Snyder is the definition of a Phenom.
The 20-year-old and current Ohio State Buckeye became the youngest American wrestler to win a gold medal Sunday, defeating Khetag Gazyumov of Azerbaijan 2-1 in a closely contested match. Snyder's victory puts a cap on an amazing year — he won the national championship in the heavyweight division this past winter and the World Championships in Las Vegas last summer.
To celebrate, current and past Buckeyes hit Twitter shortly after Snyder secured the gold medal.

I'm so happy for this kid. He put in the work and became World, NCAA, and Olympic champ all in one year. At 20 yrs old!— Lance Palmer (@LancePalmer) August 21, 2016
