Dan Gable to attend autograph signing at UNI Dome
Dan Gable Museum
04/02/2013

WATERLOO, Iowa — The National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum will host a special autograph signing with Dan Gable on Sunday, April 7 from noon to 2 p.m. The signing will take place on the north concourse of the UNI Dome during USA Wrestling’s Folkstyle Nationals held in Cedar Falls, Iowa.

This is USA Wrestling's final event of the folkstyle season, taking place on April 5-7 at the UNI Dome. It is also the first stage of the Triple Crown, which is made up of the Folkstyle Nationals, and the Freestyle and Greco-Roman Nationals.
The National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum will also have extended hours of operation during the weekend. The Gable Museum will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, April 5 and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 6.

Gable is arguably the greatest athlete and coach ever. In 1972 won a gold medal at the Munich Olympics without surrendering a point. As the head coach at the University of Iowa he led the Hawkeyes to 15 NCAA team titles in 21 years, compiling a 355-21-5 dual meet record.

The UNI Dome has been an excellent facility for wrestling competitions, with the 2013 event taking place on 26 mats. The UNI Dome was also where Dan Gable won his final NCAA tournament as the head coach of the Iowa Hawkeyes in 1997, setting the record for most points scored at 170.

That National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum is located at 303 Jefferson St. in Waterloo.
