Biography

John Hein wrestled for the Boy's Club of New York at the 1904 Olympics. Though Bob Curry threw him in the finals, Hein later won three AAU titles – in 1905, 1910, and 1913. After retiring from competition, Hein became a coach and trainer. During his own competitive days, he had boxed often while training, and he used this to good effect as one of the early trainers of Benny Leonard, world lightweight professional boxing champion.
