Wrestling apparel brand RUDIS continues to invest in the sport of its birth and has announced the signing of Kyle Snyder, the first and only wrestler to win the NCAA, World, and Olympic championships as a collegiate athlete.

On the heels of his third consecutive national title and the conclusion of a momentous collegiate career, Kyle Snyder continues to make history as a trailblazing athlete.

Upending the status quo is normal for the international phenom, and his emergent partnership with RUDIS proves just that.

Kyle announced his anxiously anticipated decision by penning a letter to the sport, titled “Dear Wrestling” and publishing it on social media. The final paragraph reads:

“There is nothing I can do to completely return all that you have given me. I know that you deserve greatness. I know that you deserve more. Every choice I make is a reflection of you, and this decision is no different. Your stories deserve to be told by someone who knows you, understands you, believes in you, and comes from you. Because of this, RUDIS is the only place for us to continue our journey.”

The letter can be found in full on Kyle’s Twitter profile, @Snyder_man45.

Serving the amateur wrestling community, RUDIS has honored some of the greatest names in the history of the sport.

RUDIS Co-founder and President Jesse Leng describes the groundbreaking partnership, saying: “What makes this truly electrifying are the reasons behind Kyle’s decision. His belief in our vision and purpose make this moment very meaningful and it speaks to his love for the sport. Kyle brings intensity and passion to everything he does and his impact is going to be massive. Our goals and paths are aligned in that we aim to dominate the sport from head to toe. There’s no better person I can think of to do this with than Kyle Snyder."
