I love that when the USA loses we immediately attack the rules.

I say we suit them up like the fencers.

Electrodes and wires throughout the singlet and shoes.

An electronic barrier along the mat to signify the boundaries.

Use the same eagle-eye technology that they use in tennis to show if a ball is in or out.

Let the computers determine in-out of bounds.

Let the computer determine the takedowns.

Keep the human element out of reffing.

That is, until someone figures out how to hack it.

Tie breaking criteria
1. Big scores, 2 > 1 + 1
2. Least amount of cautions, shot clock is a violation
3. Last score

These has been the criteria since we went to the best of 3 periods with 1 and 2 switching 3 years ago.
Bunch of snowflakes run this board, sad how the mods cater to people that support one political party.

It has been well documented that Dlagnev has had some serious back issues. He only was on the mat five times in the past 4 months.

This from the Ohio State website:
"“I am not sure about my body. I wasn’t planning on wrestling out there (in the bronze-medal bout). I kind of got talked into going out there. Hopefully it means something to somebody. I didn’t work out one day of training camp. My back locked up right when I got on the plane to leave to the Olympics. It has been a year fade. I made the Trials, but since then I have had five practices in the last four months. I have been just holding on, holding on hopefully for one big day. It didn’t go my way.”[/size][/size]

Why wasn't he pulled for an able bodied competitor?

Because he won the spot.

Any of our able bodied competitors lose in the first round with the draw he got.  He earned the spot and won two matches.  Its too bad his body didn't hold out for one more match because, if it had, he'd have medaled.
