    Is Stephen Lopez our only hope?

    ...for an American to get an olympic gold medal in a combat sport?

    If you guys know any other american combat sports athletes that have a chance, let me know.

    I'm counting...
    Boxing
    Wrestling
    Fencing
    Judo
    TKD

    What is more incredible about lopez (though his fighting style is not realy cool and I doubt that he will win this time due to the electronic trunk protector) he not only won the olympic gold medal twice but in two different weightclasses...

    My San Shou trainer is going to the olympics this year, It's the first time San Shou is an olympic sport. In the worlds, China enters three seperate teams, hopeully they wont be able to do that at the olympics.
