By Eddie Goldman

He is the man who ended the great Alexander Kareline’s 13-year unbeaten streak at the 2000 Olympics. After becoming the focus of the greatest sports story of the 2000 Games, American Greco-Roman wrestler Rulon Gardner has done it again, winning gold at the 2001 Greco-Roman Wrestling World Championships, held Dec. 6-9 in Patras, Greece.

We spoke to the Greco-Roman wrestling world heavyweight champion just before an appearance at last week’s Midlands Tournament, and we will play in its entirety that interview with wrestling’s biggest star on this week’s "No Holds Barred News" segment on WBAI radio’s "Lightshow."

"Lightshow" airs weekly late Friday night/early Saturday morning, 3-5 AM Eastern Time. The "No Holds Barred News" segment airs in the second hour of the show, between 4 AM and 5 AM EST, early Saturday morning, January 5.

I will be live in the studio this week. The Rulon Gardner interview is prerecorded. We will also be taking phone calls at (212) 209-2900 and discussing whatever comes up in the world of combat sports, including next week’s UFC 35, boxing, real wrestling, and kickboxing.

WBAI broadcasts in New York on 99.5 FM. For those not in the New York area, WBAI can also be heard live on the Internet. There are two sites that stream the signal: http://www.wbai.org/ and http://www.2600.com/wbai. At this time broadcasts of "Lightshow" are not archived, but we are working on getting these audio interviews posted.

We also now have a new e-mail address for our segment: nhblightshow@yahoo.com.
