Kevin Jackson is one of very few 3x World & Olympic Champions in American wrestling history. A native of Michigan, Jackson burst onto the international scene in the late 1980's and never looked back. Beginning with his 1991 World Championship, Jackson has been a staple in the American landscape as an athlete and coach. A 1992 Olympic Gold Medalist, Jackson succeeded Bruce Burnett as head coach of the US Men's Freestyle Team in 2001, where he held the position for nearly a decade.
Simply put, Kevin Jackson is etched into the fiber of our American wrestling culture. He is a true icon in the sport & Rudis is proud to pay homage to the legend.
