Munich, August, 1972: West German wrestler Wilfried Dietrich tries in vain to get a grip on eventual bronze medalist Chris Taylor of the U.S. at the Olympic Games. The 400-pound Taylor won the freestyle bout between the two in a 3-2 decision, but in the Greco-Roman competition a few days later Dietrich, outweighed by about 125 pounds, managed to get Taylor on his shoulders and throw him to win the match.
