Today’s Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has an interview with TNA star and Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle. Angle spoke about this year’s Olympic games in Beijing as well the 1996 summer games from Atlanta where he won gold. “Sometimes you only have one shot, and if you don’t get it right, your whole dream withers away.” Regarding the 1996 Olympics, Angle said, “I definitely wasn’t the best wrestler in my weight class, or the fastest or smartest, but I was the best conditioned. I actually got more confident as a match went on.” The article also notes that Angle “welcomes the chance to prove his innocence” of charges of driving under the influence of alcohol, refusing a blood test and careless driving from September 2007. A non-jury trial before Judge David R. Cashman is scheduled for Sept. 9.
