Heavyweight Olympic wrestler Kyle Snyder won the gold medal on Sunday. At just 20-years-old, he becomes the youngest American to win a wrestling gold medal, breaking the record held by Henry Cejudo, who is now a UFC fighter.

Snyder defeated Khetag Goziumov, 33. Goziumov won the bronze medal in two prior Olympics.

Snyder was an NCAA champion at Ohio State and amassed a 170-0 record in high school.

Here's video of Snyder's gold medal performance.
