Alan and Gloria Rice Greco-Roman Hall of Champions Induction Postponed

Waterloo, Iowa – Due to unforeseen circumstances with Rulon Gardner’s schedule, the National Wrestling Hall of Fame is postponing the Alan and Gloria Rice Greco-Roman Hall of Champions scheduled for October 9, 2010, in Minneapolis, Minn. The event will be rescheduled for a date when Gardner can attend.

Gardner, a 2000 Olympic champion and 2001 World champion, was scheduled to be this year’s lone inductee. The Alan & Gloria Rice Greco-Roman Hall of Champions is located inside the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum in Waterloo, Iowa. Gardner was inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame as a distinguished member in Stillwater, Okla., earlier this year.

 The National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum will reschedule the event for next year.

“We regret that unforeseen circumstances have kept Rulon Gardner from attending his induction into the Greco-Roman Hall of Champions,” said Alan Rice, namesake of the Hall of Champions. “We respect the confidentiality of his personal situation that forced his cancelation; however, we look forward to his induction into the hall of champions next year.”
