Goerie.com is featuring an interview with TNA wrestler Kurt Angle who talks about his attempt at the Olympics this year, being plagued with injuries during his training and admitting his chances of making the team isn’t good.
“Slim to none. I’m 43 years old and I’m not as good as I used to be, obviously, but I believe I can still contend. I’ve beaten myself up a lot. When I came back and started working out for the Olympics this time, I kept getting hurt. I popped a patellar tendon, then I popped an Achilles, then I blew out my hamstring. I went to my doctor and said, ‘What’s going on? I’m a machine, I don’t get hurt.’ He said you’re over 40, things are gonna happen to you unless you train. So I spent four months training just to get ready to get back on the mat.”
