With regard to FS, only Iran and Russia are sending full compliments.

GR -  Only Cuba is sending a full compliment

WFS - China, Japan, Mongolia, Russia, and US. 

Top 10 countries and how many participants are going to Olympics.  So we are number 2 with 15, so that is not too bad.

 ROC    17
United States    15
 Cuba    12
 Japan    12
 China    11
 Iran    11
 Kazakhstan    11
 Tunisia    10
 Ukraine    10
 Mongolia    9

Top 10 for MFS/GR

 ROC    11
 Iran    11
United States    9
 Cuba    9
 Kazakhstan    8
 Algeria    8
 Uzbekistan    8
 Turkey    7
 Georgia    7
 Japan    6

Top 10 for MFS

 ROC    6
 Iran    6
United States    5
 Kazakhstan    5
 Algeria    4
 Uzbekistan    4
 Turkey    4
 Japan    4
 Belarus    4
 India    4
 Cuba    3


Top 10 in GR  ( I included all who have 4 entries)
 Cuba    6
 ROC    5
 Iran    5
United States    4
 Algeria    4
 Uzbekistan    4
 Georgia    4
 Tunisia    4
 Egypt    4
 Armenia    4
 Kyrgyzstan    4
 Germany    4
 Hungary    4


So our women are doing the job.  We are sending 5 of 6 in MFS and 4 of 6 for GR.  I believe we have a number of projected medalists among the women and men FS'ers.  I don't think we have any projected for GR, but I have to admit, I have not kept up with GR.  But none of our GR wrestlers qualified in the WC's, they all qualified in the Pan Am's.

Is Russia not participating in the Olympics?

Well it is the oldest sport. Clearly He must have been the first wrestler.

I think you may have something there. Check out Genesis 32:24-30.

So what was the man's name? Cael? Daniel? Kyle? Or Perhaps Abdulrashid?

I agree with RV there (he should stick to wrestling  ;D )

Askren embarrassed wrestling. He committed one of the cardinal sins of any sport... underetimating the competition. And now he's become a joke punch line. I hope it was worth the $.

I will accept this if there was a considerable amount of groveling by this conference traitor.

To me this reminds me of the philandering old husband wanting some nookie on the side that he's not getting from his current wife and he doesnt think his current girfriend is all that good at what he's not getting from his wife.

But the old girlfriend misses providing that nookie.

International / Re: Cox missed weight

I think they handled it appropriately. No proof that this came from USA wrestling. If he did have proof then maybe he has a case but how do u handle it? Maybe require him to beat Snyder 2 in a row so Snyder at least gets something for beating all those other guys.

Cox only had to beat 1 guy, 2 out of 3.

He had to beat two guys, then 2 out of 3 with Snyder.  #1 coming out of the mini tourney faces Snyder.  Cox was inserted as a semi finalist, so that is one match, and then a final would have been the other match.  Then 2 of 3.

I meant Snyder there not Cox.

We have two conflicting priorities here.

This first priority is to establish clear rules and time tables and enforce them fairly.

The second priority is to put the best 6 men we can on the team.

Both priorites are important. If you violate the first you set bad precidents that undermine the selection system. If you viloate the second you undermine the purpose of the selection process.

While I would never want to adopt the Russian or Iranian selection processes, I seriously doubt they would let an incident like this stop them from placing a wrestler on the team if they thought he was the best candidate to medal.

J'Den Cox is my favorite wrestler today. But lets face it, he screwed up, notwithstanding his coach's attempt to take the blame.


So... I wont be outraged if they deny Cox's desire to be given a chance for a 1 match challenge of Moore and if successful a 2 out of 3 challenge of Snyder. But nor would I be outraged if they did.

That's pretty cool AKIN.  Let us know which matches you are involved with.

I'm an athlete escort, so I've been lucky to be matside for most of the best matches. It's interesting to see the different warm-up routines the wrestlers have.
Please elaborate

Some just walk back and forth in the warm-up area, some drill, some jump up and down, some scream out every few minutes. It's just interesting to see how they get psyched up. You learn pretty quickly who you can have a conversation with, and who you need to leave alone. All the coaches were really good about having conversations while waiting to go into the "chute", before heading to the mats. Well, all but Brands, he didn't care to talk to anyone. McKnight from NLWC is an awesome guy. I got to talk to he and Cody before Helen's last match. They were great.

Also, the escorts in the finals are the USADA chaperones for their athletes, so once the match is over, you are responsible for getting them back to the testing area. Some of them go quickly. Others, not so much. I had Gwiz after he lost, and I got to keep an eye on him for about 30 minutes before he decided he was ready to go. I had Rau, and he went quickly, after putting his shoes in the center of the mat. Finally, I had Helen in the last match. Needless to say, I wasn't done for a long time after wrestling ended. It was a great time over the two days. I hope I get a chance to do something like this again.

Which Brands? Terry I assume. So...he was a bit of grinch huh? Whoulda thunk it. Should have had a movie camera I guess.  ;D

57 Suriano v Colon... I take Suriano but there are 6 guys here who could win this weight
65 Zane v Yianni.... Im taking Yianni but this is really too close to call. These two are clearly the best in weight but JO has the best chance of the also rans.
74 Burroughs v Dake... Dake. If JB had to wade through that tournament Im not sure he'd reach the finals. With Imar out, Nolf has the best shot at unseating Dake.
86 Taylor vs Zahid... Taylor but it will be very very close.and so will Bo vs Zahid. This is the 2nd deepest weight with Dean, Bo & A Brooks the most dangerous challangers
97 Snyder v Cox... Cox in a very low scoring series. This is a two man race but I'll predict Moore as my solid 3rd
125  Gwiz v Gable... Gable and it wont be all that close either. T his is another 2 man race with Parris 3rd



Well Im gonna have to revise that 57 projection. Its being reported that Suriano is out with COVID. So... My new prediction is Colon over Set Gross

I failed to redo my bracket. But Colon beat Gross in the Qtrs. So Im going with Vito over Colon
