Approximately 50 youths received instruction from Snyder, who became the youngest Olympic wrestling champion in U.S. history when he won the gold at 97 kilograms last year in Rio de Janeiro at age 20. “I like teaching wrestling,” said Snyder, who has won two NCAA titles at Ohio State, where he will be a senior in the fall. “It’s fun to be able to use what I’ve learned to help other people.” SECOND PHOTO: Shane Cunanan, a coach with Napili and Lahainaluna High School, watches his nephew, Alaia Cunanan (right), and Makana Goodwin during a drill.
