WATERLOO, Iowa—The National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum will host a special autograph signing with Dan Gable on Friday, Nov. 1 from 2-4 p.m. The signing will take place during USA Wrestling's Pre-season Nationals held at the UNI Dome in Cedar Falls.

This is one of USA Wrestling major events, taking place on Nov. 2-3 at the UNI Dome.

“This is our first autograph signing with Dan Gable at the Dan Gable Museum since the IOC decision to include wrestling at the Olympics,” said Kyle Klingman, director of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum. “We are excited to have Dan back in his hometown.”

Gable is arguably the greatest athlete and coach ever. In 1972 won a gold medal at the Munich Olympics without surrendering a point. As the head coach at the University of Iowa he led the Hawkeyes to 15 NCAA team titles in 21 years, compiling a 355-21-5 dual meet record.

The UNI Dome has been an excellent facility for wrestling competitions. The UNI Dome was also where Dan Gable won his final NCAA tournament as the head coach of the Iowa Hawkeyes in 1997, setting the record for most points scored at 170.

That National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum is located at 303 Jefferson St. in Waterloo. All are welcome to attend this special autograph signing.
