Torn ACL? No biggie. Cornell's Yianni Diakomihalis won an NCAA wrestling title with one

The Legend of Yianni.

It sounds like a feature film, but that's what the wrestling career of Hilton graduate Yianni Diakomihalis already is — legendary. It gained another chapter this week. An MRI on Tuesday revealed that the knee injury he suffered in last weekend's NCAA quarterfinals was, in fact, a torn anterior cruciate ligament. It didn't stop Diakomihalis, of course. The Cornell University rookie went on to win two more matches on that bum knee and capture the 141-pound title in Cleveland.
