A Wrestlers Dream Brute is steeped with wrestling heritage, dating back to its founder, retired Naval Captain Josiah (Joe) Henson. Captain Henson founded Bruteís parent company, Henson Company, in 1967. Due to its rapid growth, Captain Henson formed a corporation with Iver Magnussen, who was highly successful as a competitor, a coach, and molder of men. Magnussen was the eventual founder of the wrestling company ñ The Mat Corner. Magnussenís accomplishments were cut short by his untimely death at the age of 46. Captain Hensonís legend has remained a quiet one because the man himself does not seek attention. But after reading this, we hope youíll agree he belongs alongside of Americaís wrestling greats.

Origin and History of the Olympic Games
The Rise of the Games
The Olympic Games originated long ago in ancient Greece. Exactly when the Games were first held and what circumstances led to their creation is uncertain. We do know, however, that the Games were a direct outgrowth of the values and beliefs of Greek society. The Greeks idealized physical fitness and mental discipline, and they believed that excellence in those areas honored Zeus, the greatest of all their gods. One legend about the origin of the Olympic Games revolves around Zeus. It was said Zeus once fought his father, Kronos, for control of the world. They battled atop a mountain that overlooked a valley in southwestern Greece. After Zeus defeated his father, a temple and immense statue were built in the valley below to honor him. This valley was called Olympia, and soon religious festivals developed there as people came to worship Zeus and to approach as nearly as possible his great strength. It is believed that these religious festivals eventually led to the famed Games of the Olympics. Although we do not know just when the Games were first played, the earliest recorded Olympic competition occurred in 776 B.C. It had only one event, the one-stade (approximately 630-foot or 192-meter) race, which was won by a cook named Coroebus. This was the start of the first Olympiad, the four-year period by which the Greeks recorded their history.

The History of the Olympics Since the Olympic games go way back to the early Greeks, to do an entire history on one page is a bit overwhelming. So, I'll give you a brief summation of how it all began, and then provide some further links for additional information. So, how and why did it all begin? In ancient Greece, they often combined religious festivals with sporting events, to honor certain gods. The Greeks held the following: The Pythian Games
The Nemean Games
The Isthmian Games
The Olympic Games It was the last one, the Olympics, that were held for the Greek God Zeus and were also the most popular with the people. The first game is said to be held at Olympia, Greece in 776 B.C. and has been held every 4 years since = 1,168 years! Then, Greece came under the rule of the Roman Empire and the Olympic games were declined, to the point where they actually declined in 393 B.C. by the Christian Roman Emperor, Theodosius I, who objected to what he felt were some "pagan rites" associated with the games. In the beginning, the Olympic games were confined to just one day and one event. That event was a footrace that was the length of the stadium. Soon, additional races were added as the popularity grew, as well as discus and javelin throws (tosses), broad jumps, boxing, wrestling, chariot racing and a pentathlon. The pentathlon was composed of 5 different track and field competitions.

The rebirth of the Games
The first Session of the IOC was held in Paris on 23-24 June 1894. It was during the first Session that the city of Athens was selected for the Games of the I Olympiad. The inauguration of the first Games of the modern era, opened by King George I at the foot of the Acropolis on April 5, 1896, was a huge relief for baron Pierre de Coubertin. Greece's instability and economic stature, due to numerous conflicts, proved almost insurmountable obstacles. However, a wealthy Greek architect from Alexandria, George Averoff, donated a gift of one million drachma and in a matter of 18 months a superb white marble stadium, able to hold 60,000 people, was constructed. Baron de Coubertin's dream of reinventing the Games was one he had coveted since 1892 - two years later the official announcement was made and Athens chosen as the site. Baron Pierre de Coubertin invited countries from all over the world to attend the first of the new Olympics in Athens.

Origins of the sport can be traced back 15,000 years through depictions in cave drawings in France. Early Egyptian and Babylonian reliefs depict wrestlers using most of the holds known to the present-day sport. In ancient Greece, wrestling occupied a prominent place in legend and literature; wrestling competition, brutal in many aspects, was the supreme contest of the ancient Olympic Games. The ancient Romans borrowed heavily from Greek wrestling, but eliminated much of its brutality. During the Middle Ages (5th century to 15th century) wrestling remained popular in Europe and enjoyed the patronage of many monarchs. Royal houses in Japan also supported the sport. Early North American settlers brought a strong wrestling tradition from England to their new home. The colonists also found wrestling to be popular among Native Americans. Amateur wrestling flourished and was a popular activity at country fairs, holiday celebrations, and military exercises.

The Ancient Olympic Games

The Olympic Games were first held in 776 BC at Olympia in Ancient Greece as part of a religious festival. They were one of four game festivals held in Ancient Greece: The Isthmians, The Nemeans, The Pythians and The Olympics. The Olympic Games were so important to the Ancient Greeks that wars were stopped while they were held.
for Olympic posters Ancient Olympic champions were highly revered. They received a crown made from olive leaves, were entitled to have statues made of themselves placed at Olympia, and were believed to bring their hometowns into favour with the Greek gods. It was also common for champions to have all their meals paid for at the public's expense or to get front-row seats at theatres.

J im L ucas Some Wrestling History
Jim Lucas Jim's wrestling career commenced as a Freshman in high school where he was a lowly fourth string on a lowly ranked team. Within two years, Jim became a highly ranked wrestler in California making two US Junior teams. He culminated his high school career by placing 4th in the CIF State Championships in 1970. He went on to wrestle at top 20 Division I powerhouse San Jose State making All-PCAA honors in 1972, 1973 and 1974. Between 1971 and 1975 Jim was on four US dual match teams competing against premier teams from Japan, Russian, Bulgaria and Germany. During this time Jim defeated three Olympic champions. Jim took a 20 year hiatus from wrestling but when his then 6th grade son went out for the team there was no coach. Jim took the reins of the team and coached them to three consecutive runner up placings in the highly competitive Coast County Athletic League in Santa Cruz. Jim also started wrestling again during this time. He won a few local tournaments going against competitors half his age. He placed 2nd at the AAU Masters Grand Nationals in 1997, and placed in the top three of the USA Wrestling Veterans National Championships from 1998 - 2001. Jim also placed in the top ten at the Veterans World Championships during that same timeframe. Jim is the only veterans wrestler from California to have made All-America five years running. Jim is now coaching at Harbor High School in Santa Cruz where his team recently captured its first league championship in school history with a record nine wrestlers qualifying for the Central Coast Sectional Championships.

Wrestling with the Past: The Latest Olympic Challenge Lili Cole
From record-breaking victories to the scandals of failed drug tests, today's Olympics have no shortage of dramatic moments. But at last month's Games in Sydney, such dramas were eclipsed by Cathy Freeman becoming the first Aboriginal Australian to win an individual gold medal (in the 400-meter race). Freeman, who was chosen to light the Olympic flame at the start of the games, was in tears as the home crowd treated her to rapturous applause. It was a moment not just of personal triumph but of great symbolism for the "new Australia," which bases its identity on Aboriginal and Asian, as well as European, culture and history. Throughout Australia's history as a nation, the Aborigines have been victims of deep poverty and discrimination. Aboriginal demands for social and economic justice have intensified in recent years, and activists had threatened to disrupt the Games with their calls for official apologies and reparations. Instead, Aborigines succeeded in highlighting their culture and presence in Australia. Olympic organizers used Aboriginal motifs and imagery in ceremonies and graphic designs, and Freeman gave a triumphant face and voice to the long-marginalized Aborigines. As Sir Gustav Nossal, chairman of the Council for Aboriginal Reconciliation , said, "The Olympics did more in two weeks to promote reconciliation than [Australian] governments have achieved in years."
