article imageOp-Ed: Mark Schultz: 2015 belonged to Olympic gold medalist wrestler

By Markos Papadatos     Nov 26, 2015 in Sports
2015 belonged to Olympic gold medalist wrestler Mark Schultz, whose life story was made into the feature film "Foxcatcher."
Last year, Schultz released his Foxcatcher book, which was a best-selling book, and it was made into the Oscar-nominated film Foxcatcher, starring Channing Tatum and Steve Carell. The only downside to the film was that it contained many inaccuracies, and Digital Journal was able to clarify most of those with the help of Mark Schultz himself.

In October, the "Prince of Pennsylvania" documentary was released on ESPN, and it was a compelling account of the trials and tribulations that Mark Schultz endured in his life, and how he was able to overcome them. It is no wonder that "Prince of Pennsylvania" was dubbed the "best sports documentary" by Digital Journal.
This past summer, both Mark and his late brother Dave, were inducted into the Peninsula Sports Hall of Fame, for its Class of 2015.
For all of these reasons and more, 2015 belonged to Olympic gold medalist Mark Schultz. His life story is still relevant today, and the impact he had on the sport of wrestling will stand the test of time.
