Don't you freaking love him? He's one of the most legendary wrestlers ever. And he's a gentleman, such an amazing personality.

The only athletes i follow on instagram: Ale, Karelin, Allyson Felix :p

"On Sunday, Fouad Baka of Algeria finished a 1500-meter race in just 3 minutes and 49.59 seconds at Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro.

That’s fast, so fast that if Baka had finished with that time at that exact stadium in August, he would have beat out Matthew Centrowitz Jr. of the U.S. for the Olympic gold medal. Centrowitz Jr. finished the final in 3 minutes and 50 seconds.

Unfortunately for Baka, he wasn’t racing in the Olympics. He was racing in the Paralympics, where not one or two runners finished ahead of him, but three."

Not the best comparison but it's still VERY impressive.
