Wrestle!

Interesting, but I'd argue the point that there are a few dominant countries in wrestling. Russia, of course. Iran is usually good. And the USA of course. In women's wrestling don't the Japanese pretty much own everybody else?

Anyway, I like to see the little countries do well. Good luck to them.
