RUDIS signs 3-time NCAA Champion Spencer Lee

Hawkeye wrestler enters 2021-2022 season seeking a historic 4th title

Marysville, OH— RUDIS is proud to announce the signing of Spencer Lee from The University of Iowa to its Elite Athlete program.  Heading into the 2021-2022 season, Lee has his eyes set on winning a 4th NCAA Championship.  Should he succeed, he would be only the 5th athlete in the history of college wrestling to do so.  

Lee has already amassed one of the most impressive careers in the history of college wrestling. In addition to his 3 NCAA titles, his honors include The Big Ten Medal of Honor, 2X Hodge Trophy Winner, The Sullivan Award, Big Ten Academic All-American, NCAA Most Dominant Wrestler, and Big Ten Wrestler of the Year.  As a high school wrestler in Pennsylvania he won 3 State Titles, the Cadet World Championships, and two Junior World Championships, all while staying on the honor roll and volunteering at The Kids Club and Miracle League.

RUDIS Co-Founder and President Jesse Leng speaks about Lee and the significance of Spencer Lee joining Team RUDIS.

“It’s a real honor to have Spencer join our team here at RUDIS.  Most of the wrestling world is aware of his dominance of the sport over the last few years but just as impressive is the character and leadership he demonstrates off the mat.  The teaming of Spencer Lee and the RUDIS brand is a perfect fit. We’re thrilled to have him on the team.”

Spencer Lee is not the only athlete in his family; his mother, Cathy, was an alternate on the U.S. Olympic Judo team and his father, Larry, was the U.S. Judo national and paralympic team coach.  He joins U.S. Olympic Gold Medalist Kyle Snyder and Olympic Gold Medalist Tamyra Mensah-Stock on the RUDIS Team.

Serving the amateur wrestling community, RUDIS honors some of the greatest names in the history of the sport including Dave Schultz, Cary Kolat, Kenny Monday, Lincoln Mcllravy, Russ Hellickson, and more.

Born from wrestling and built for wrestling. RUDIS was created with a single vision in mind: be the most accurate and authentic expression of the sport through apparel. The core values of wrestling govern our every action and drive us to continually innovate, serve, and connect with those who love this sport.”
