Title: Stieber Gets His World Title
Post by: RYou on December 13, 2016, 07:09:09 PM
Non-Olympic 61 kg, with last second TDs in the Q and Semi finals.  Much easier 8-4 ride in the title bout.

Do you all think Stieber will attempt to move down to 57kg for the 2020 Olympics?

he is about the most exciting American to watch right now.  it's like watching the Cubans, you're not sure how badly they're going to win or lose, but it will be fun to see.

I think he can take whichever of the weights he feels most comfortable at, 57 could be a tough haul for him though

He was attack, attack, attack.  Very good and entertaining matches for sure.

He lost a lot of muscle mass getting to 61.  I doubt there is another 9 lbs in him to give up.
