1. Same day weigh ins

2. Addition of two more weight classes to Men's and Women's freestyle and Greco.

3. Penalizing passivity

1) But they will have a 2 kg weight allowance the second day.  If they are actually trying to reduce weight cutting, they shouldn't have such a large allowance for day 2.  Oh well.  Baby steps.

2) Now, if they can only get the Olympics to follow suit...

3) But they haven't defined the penalties yet.

So there are a lot of questions that this article generates.  For instance - What will be the weight categories?   I'm not sure it matters, what matters is that this is moving in the right direction!!

I bet they dont include 105.5.

No worries from me.  I don't weight that anymore since HS!!  I'm a whole 35 lbs more now.
