Biography

Bryan Hines attended Northwestern University and won his only AAU title at 123 lbs. in 1924. He was expected to be a contender for the gold at the 1924 Olympics, but was overweight when he arrived in Paris and worked so hard to lose the weight that he was very weak for his matches. Still, he hung on to win the bronze medal behind two Finnish wrestlers.
