    Worlds Day 1 61/74/86/125kg

    WHOA! FIX HAD HIS JUICES FLOWING THERE! You see what I did there. But also, seriously, Fix looked incredible.

    It is still a World Championship regardless of who chose not to go. The amount it is "watered down" depends a lot on the particular weight you are talking about. 86 kg, 97 kg & 125 kg are very tough and most of the non-Olympic weights are comparable to an average year. 57kg 74kg & 65 kg are missing some pretty key guys but you can only wrestle the guys that bother to show up.

    It was the classic Dake trifecta 1. Won the match 2. Got a lead and quit trying to score 3. Jawed at the ref and his opponent

    Are you telling me an anti-vaxxer is getting his data from a bad, obviously propagandistic source that confirms his priors? WHAT???? Not all vaccine skeptics are this stupid, but some of the stuff posted on this forum is breathtaking. I've met 8 year olds better at vetting information sources.

    My good buddy, Erwin Schrödinger, told me they're both there and not there. I have not looked yet.

    But this is NOT VAERS. It's OPENVaers.= which is an anti-vax site. https://www.logically.ai/articles/california-woman-anti-vax-site-openvaers I believe the reported figures are simply those that happened AFTER getting vaccinations. Just because B happened after A doesn't in the least mean A caused B.

    There are two feeds on Flo - the Flozone just has the guys in Austin. Mat B has the global announcers and the arena noise. Honestly given only one mat going in the semis there really isn't any point in watching Flozone.

    Flo is not in Oslo

    Flo is not doing commentary for the main UWW feed (which goes out to many other countries, not just where Flo streams it) but 6 Flo's are very much Oslo and working inside the arena right now. A few more Flo's will be in Austin hosting a watch party. Also you couldn't watch Worlds on UWW's website for free since at least 2017. TrackWrestling had UWW streaming rights from 2017-2020 and charged you to watch. I think before before that they may have been free but they didn't even have a live broadcast in the FILA days, so we're talking maybe 2 or 3 years of free broadcasts (which also meant UWW was losing lots of money on the event). You also aren't being charged $150 to watch the worlds on Flo you are being charged $150 for a years worth of the greatest bundle of wrestling the world has ever known. still may not be worth the money to you but you get a whole lot more than one super bad ass tournament for your 150.

    Nice! I am going next weekend! I would watch a session and get a run in as soon as I could. Often it was too hot. I am on Hal Higdon Intermediate 2, with a touch of Jack Daniels (not the whiskey) along with my own lifting and running. Calculators tell me I can run a 3:52, but I'm shooting for 4:00. I lost 60 over the past few years, and have had covid, skin cancer and a couple minor injuries this past year... so I will be happy with whatever. What time are you shooting for? Good luck!

    Who's the commentator in this match?

    It's Jason Knapp. He's very good. Knowledgable. Focused on the action. Provides stories and background but doesn't stray too far from what is going on. He relies on the experts and insiders (e.g., John Smith) when he has them on. He also has a pleasant voice. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jason_Knapp_(sportscaster) https://twitter.com/jasonknapp44?lang=en

    No one disputes the fact that natural immunity is more effective than the vaccine, right? If so, then why would anyone support a vaccine mandate for EVERYONE? Furthermore, it is an indisputable fact that we do not know what, if any, long term side effects the vaccine may have. So I don’t blame anyone for not getting the shot if they are low risk or already have natural immunity. I chose to get the vaccine, but I am not attacking others for not getting it. This is what leads to such division in this country. The argument that you are concerned for the unvaccinated children doesn’t really hold any weight because it is a fact that unvaccinated children are still at a much lower risk than vaccinated adults. If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask@ShakaAloha because he knows more than me.

    Of course we all hope this is true. But if it is true then why would the new President need to appoint a new CDC director?

    How am I a conspiracy theorist? I am a student of government, I know how it works. I think there's been plenty of bickering and stirring of trouble. I am a covid survivor. I am vaxxed, I wish everyone would get it. But I am troubled by some of the thinking out there regarding vaccines.

    Many vaccines are more effective than natural immunity due to having multiple booster shots, which drive affinity maturation and IgM to IgG isotype switching. All vaccines are bettrer than natural immunity because you get the protection without the risk of death and bodily harm. If you get infected after the fact, then you get the natural immunity anyway, and are more likely to survive it.

    Khramiankou is in that "quality wrestler" tier with people like Khots, Deng. A top guy like Zare should beat that tier of wrestler in the big tournaments. Excited to see him vs Taha.

    Again, a slew of mistatements starting with #1. It is FALSE that anyone knowledgeable every said it is 100% effective - but it is an extremely effective vaccine. Your argument fails entirely at step one and there are a slew of false premises and poor reasoning in each of your next steps.

    Wish we had a wrestler on our team with that nickname and a handlebar mustache. Iszmail "Exhausted Smurf" Muszukajev has always been high on my list I think we need a thread where we just give high profile wrestlers our own nicknames .
