John Irving. Writer and ... wrestler?

John Irving at Exter

Yep. Turns out that the role wrestling plays in his work is the product of first hand experience. Irving was captain of the Exeter Academy wrestling team, and also wrestled at the University of Pittsburgh before receiving his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire and a M.F.A. from the Writers’ Workshop at the University of Iowa, where his mentor was Kurt Vonnegut.
