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.
