OMG – the mother of wrestling great has a meltdown when he’s upset in the NCAA wrestling tourney. 

The University of Iowa has had a wrestler in the NCAA finals every year since 1990.  It holds the NCAA record for the most consecutive National Championships in a row having won 9 starting in 1978.

This year Iowa had another great wrestling team and it was led by senior Spencer Lee.

The AP reported:

Purdue’s Matt Ramos pulled one of the most stunning upsets in NCAA Division I wrestling history, ending Iowa’s Spencer Lee’s chase for four national titles with a pin in the closing seconds of their semifinal match on Friday night.

Ramos, the No. 4 seed at 125 pounds, got the fall with one second remaining in the third period to end the nation’s longest win streak at 58 matches.

Lee had won 3 national titles in his career and was going for his fourth.  He was 2 wins away when he met with Ramos.  Only 5 wrestlers in NCAA history have won 4 titles.  Lee was 2 wins away from being the 6th.  Then he got pinned.

This was too much for his mom to see.
