Wrestler Kurt Angle My Olympic Run’s in Jeopardy … Cause I Tore My Hammy

Former Team USA wrestling bad ass Kurt Angle has hit a major hurdle in his quest to return to the Olympics … telling TMZ he sustained a major injury that could put an end to his journey.

Angle — who won a gold medal for heavyweight freestyle wrestling at the ’96 games — just called in to “TMZ Live” and explained, “I injured my hamstring this morning … it is a tear.”

The 43-year-old says the injury occurred during a training session this morning … and he has an MRI scheduled for tomorrow.

Angle tells us, “I still plan on going [to the Olympics] … I’ve been training for a whole year now … so it all depends on how it heals … but if this tear is really bad, there’s a chance I may not go.”
