Kyle Snyder Wins The 88th AAU Sullivan Award

Wrestler Kyle Snyder has been named the 2018 AAU Sullivan Award Winner during a ceremony at the New York Athletic Club.

Snyder is the youngest Olympic gold medalist as well as the youngest World Champion in world history. He also wrestled collegiately at Ohio State where he won three national championships.

He was a finalist last year as well and said that his favorite part about being nominated was ‘getting to meet all of the other great athletes.”

Snyder was part of an incredible group of finalists that also included volleyball player Annika Abrecht, para-equestrian Angela Peavy, distance runner Erin Finn, basketball player Joel Berry II, volleyball player Kelly Hunter, and figure skaters Maia and Alex Shibutani.

Prior to the award ceremony, the finalists got a chance to experience parts of New York. They got a chance to participate in a subway-themed escape room and visited the city’s Ronald McDonald House.

Nine-time Olympic Gold Medalist Carl Lewis was the MC of the evening and he gave a stirring speech on the importance of the award and the impact the finalists have made to the sports world.

 


Eastbay is a proud sponsor of the AAU Sullivan Award and is committed to serving amateur athletes everywhere.
