Iowa State University wrestler Cael Sanderson becomes the first wrestler to go undefeated through his NCAA career.  His record of 159-0 was called the No. 2 most outstanding achievement in collegiate sports history by Sports Illustrated and his final win (2002 NCAA 197 pound championship) was one of the NCAA’s “25 Defining Moments” for its Centennial celebration.  Sanderson would go on to earn Olympic Gold in the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece.
