We all know that Neil deGrasse Tyson was one thing of a wunderkind throughout his highschool years. For those who’re an OC common, you’ve learn all about how Carl Sagan personally recruited Tyson to review with him at Cornell. Deftly, politely, the younger Tyson declined and went to Harvard.
There’s maybe one other facet of the precocious Tyson you won’t know as a lot about. The athletic facet. Whereas a pupil at The Bronx High School of Science, Tyson (class of 1976) wore basketball sneakers belonging to the Knick’s Walt “Clyde” Frazier. He ran a formidable 4:25 mile. And he captained the varsity’s wrestling staff, throughout which period he conjured up a new-fangled wrestling transfer. In skilled wrestling, Ric Aptitude had the dreaded Figure Four Leg Lock, and Jimmy Snuka, a devastating Superfly Splash. Tyson? He had the scary “Double Tidal Lock.” He explains and demonstrates the physics-based transfer within the video under, initially recorded at the University of Indianapolis.
