On Episode 49 of the World Wrestling Resource podcast, we go deep into the mind of Kemp and talk about his new book “Winning Gold” and life growing up as an adopted African-American moving from the city to rural Ohio, wrestling Dan Gable, his attempts at the Olympics, the 1980 boycott as well as race and its role in his life and in the sport of wrestling.

Kemp also shares stories he’s never told on the record about wrestling a young Dave Schultz in front of absolutely no one to make an Olympic team — one that never competed.
