In amateur wrestling, the Summer Olympics' ultimate contact sport, no one touched more people than did Dave Schultz. It seems as if everyone who knew him has a story to tell. Schultz won the freestyle gold medal at 163 pounds in the 1984 Summer Games at Los Angeles, then lost in the 1988 U.S. trials to Kenny Monday. When Monday won at Seoul, Schultz was the first to rush onto the mat to congratulate him.

David Schultz is the only motorcycle drag racer who has scored a double-double. Now he wants to become the first to score a triple. In pro bike parlance, a "double" is winning both the National Hot Rod Assn. and the International Drag Bike Assn. championships in the same year. A "double double" means doing it two years in a row. Schultz did it in 1987 and 1988. A "triple" is winning the NHRA, IDBA and the Prostar series titles in the same year.
