Robin Reed pins a teammate at Oregon State
Robin Reed met Harry Steel, and both became Olympic champions at the 1924 Paris Olympics. Then, though from different weight classes, they wrestled each other, with Reed triumphing in a victory for teacher over pupil.
Steel wasn't even supposed to be an Olympian. He didn't have much formal training as a wrestler and finished third at the annual AAU tournament in 1924.
He made it to the Paris Games as a replacement and went on to win the gold medal, beating a much more experienced wrestler, Sweden's Ernst Nilsson, in the heavyweight championship match.
Steel, an Ohio farm boy, went to Paris in the company of fellow wrestler Reed, perhaps America's best-known wrestler before World War II.
Reed earned his titles by working hard to perfect his moves. In Paris, he quickly taught Steel some moves, which helped Steel win the gold medal in the heavyweight division.
Reed, who was undefeated between 1921 and 1924, won his gold medal in the featherweight division.
Then, in a side bout, just to make sure Steel understood who was the boss, Reed pinned Steel three times in 15 minutes.
