article imageMark Schultz talks digital transformation of wrestling, future Special

By Markos Papadatos     Oct 19, 2017 in Sports
Olympic gold medalist wrestler Mark Schultz chatted with Digital Journal about his latest endeavors, and the digital transformation of the wrestling industry.
"I have been fine," he said. "Life has slowed since the movie and the book deals. I applied for some coaching jobs."
On his plans for the future, he said, "It's time to switch to something different like Jiu-Jitsu/Wrestling/MMA club." He revealed that he has a new screenplay in the works, as well as a new book that is very close to being finished.
Schultz also opened up about the digital transformation of the wrestling industry. "I think it's pretty obvious how readily available technique is now on YouTube, but technique is only about 10 percent of what it takes to win," he said. "90 percent is cardiovascular conditioning," he underscored.
On the impact of technology on the entertainment world, the Olympic gold medalist said, "Everyone has the power to broadcast to the entire world. I realized I had just as much power through Twitter as any other media outlet. Every major media outlet from New York to Los Angeles picked up on my tweets, and one time, I became the fastest trending name on Yahoo."
Regarding his use of technology on a daily basis, he said, "I'm promoting my seminars and body-guarding businesses on my homepage."
For his hardcore fans, he concluded, "If you want my autobiography, read the book Foxcatcher. The movie is well-acted but extremely inaccurate."
