U.S. wrestler Gable Steveson's family and friends went nuts after his last-second gold medal win

Minnesota's 21-year-old Gable Steveson on Friday became the first U.S. freestyle heavyweight wrestler to win Olympic gold since 1992, and his last-second defeat of 2016 bronze medalist Georgia's Geno Petriashvili had friends and family going insane in celebration from afar.
