Greco day 1
« on: August 14, 2016, 10:39:16 AM »
Well that challenge in the Thielke match may go down as one of the most catastrophic challenges of all time. I can't think of a time I ever saw a gut wrench converted into a throw by ruling before.

Also right after the match ends I hear who I think was Thielke shout "why did we challenge?" I agree there it was only 6-0 because of two gut wrenches and the argument they made was a weaker argument, Thielke was fine.

Bisek goes down 2-0 to the Croat.

That Croat then loses in the semifinals knocking Bisek out

Total BS call happened at the end of the first where the Croatian had the Russian flat on his back and they didn't call the pin because "the Russian was unconscious" then just like vintage FILA they refused to let Croatia challenge the call

He was down 6-0, odds were VERY high he wasn't going to win the match.  So I put that challenge into that category, even if it ended the match.
