    Iran Wrestling News

    Great job by the Iranian team. May not have a team title but 4 golds when no other country even had 2 is very impressive, Some thoughts on the wrestlers I talked about before. Geraei. It takes a very special person to repeat at these lower weight classes and he did. The field tested him, but winning close matches is the name of the game at these weights and he did. Yes there was no Ismael and some depth from other medalists, but he beat Zoidze who beat Ismael and is a deserving champ. Saravi is very good. He had a close match with Evloev and was right there, now is a world champ. I talked quite a bit Sargsyan and I wasn't wrong to say that him and Saravi were above the field. Saravi was even better. So what about Evloev. I want to see that match again. One weakness Evleov does have is his par terre defense. He is vulnerable to turns and throws form there. Saravi can exploit that, but it will be hard. Eveolv's 44-1 over 3 years? Aleksanjan might tape his body back together for another go at one of these big tournies as well. A big loss for Sargsyan. He really needed a gold here given Russia's 1 at this weight. Youseffi. I don't know what to feel about Yuseffi. Big accomplishment to win gold at heavy. Puts him in a very special class. But he isn't Iran's 1 from my understanding. Youseffi wouldn't have beaten Riza or Lopez at tokyo imo. 130 was depleted but the complicated thing is aside from Riza, no one who was missing is a class above on the participants on paper. Semenov and Oscar could have lost to people who were there. Acosta was his boring self, came away with no medal. Kajaia's live by the sword die bye the sword low offense caught up to him and got beat by the mediocre Zarubi. I don't know where this puts 130 kg. Especially if Riza declines. Could Semenov late bloom, Amin establish himself, someone new?

    If Geraei can win gold tomorrow he will become only the third Iranian GR wrestler ever to be Olympic and World champion (after Sourian and Norouzi). Historic...

    Whose tool, though? They're trying to make money, and they have the data on what drives subscriptions. Flo's goal is to get more people to subscribe to Flo, not advance Olympic wrestling in the United States. I can only imagine the disparity in viewing numbers from freestyle to greco this past week. Some of that is because American wrestlers were all over the semis and medal rounds that aired during the day in men's and women's freestyle while the greco guys had their typical struggles.

    No. I think she moved to NLWC during covid at some point and left immediately following the tune up tournament. If we're being honest, the resurgence was probably 75% getting healthy and 25% being around several other high level women wrestlers at Sunkist. I don't think she had a consistent high level training environment since Kalika before that.

    The Suriano name is Italian and in the new hit Pixar movie Luca the main character who is also named Luca became aggressively obsessed with his friend Spewlia's Astronomy book for a few minutes so I guess it is possible because the movie was based in 1950's Italy.

    Now waiting for that “Garage Trained” shirt to come out. I always felt those type of “trained” shirts were overly pretentious. Especially sense the said coach clearly wasn’t the only one involved in a wrestlers entire development.

    He made it entertaining and one wonders how it might look without those points for blue. I dont know the rules well enough, but it was just bizarre.

    It's in the hands of USCIS. I wouldn't want to let her on top of me in par terre though. Once I saw that, I promised myself it'll never happen with me. Not just the gut but everything. Very Brands like with her approach, if she can't turn you, you're going to feel very bad and possibly feel like you're being suffocated. Nothing nice about it.

    My wife's cousin might have something to say about that. She's fast tracking her immigration and could be a citizen by then. If that happens, it's going to be a big surprise for anyone at 53.

    The poor chap is using the old par terre starting position and just can't seem to get it right. Doesn't know his chest must be flat to mat. He's scrappy and shows some flashes (like with the high dive attempts, and his par terre defense is commendable) but inexperience seems to get the best of him.

    Would he wrestle 87 in GR? Thats a 22 lb gap and Hancock is still young. Amos splits his time. He has too given his folk commitments. I know he has entered greco competitions for a long time but how much does actually train greco compared to full time oversees greco people. I did not like what I saw against Mileshin. He looked raw and not fluid. Like someone who lacks hours on the mat doing greco. Heavier weights do have more of lee way for strength and athleticism but....

    9 or 10. While Kerk committed to 13 other institutions prior, he has never taken the mat for any college aside for Penn State. Beard may beat Dean. Could be 10.

    Did you even watch the match? If you did, how could you not put my comment into perspective. Hidlay punched him in the back of the head so fckn hard it knocked him out for a clean second. If he isn't allowed to fist fight during the wrestling match, Amine wins. Easily.

    Seen many a parent on many a message board, and it usually ends poorly for them with respect to their expectations about their kid. I've never heard of his daughter, but no matter how much of a prodigy she is, I have a hard time seeing her beat Fujimani, who just teched her way through Worlds at 18 years old, or Mukaida, the reigning Olympic champion who will be 27 by Paris 2024. Like he said, I guess we'll see how she does at the US Open in April...

    Most of his set ups from ties are “slicker” type elbow and drag stuff. He doesn’t really have a under-hook, club or power set up. From a pure offense standpoint. He either dives from space or relies on slick stuff in close

    I picture Cubans sitting around talking like we talk about Rivera or the Amines, "I'm happy for Vera, he was never going to make our team, if he can go to one of these lesser countries with no competition, good for him, at least it gives him a shot"

    New Oregon DIII College Program - Linfield

    Linfield University is adding men's and women's wrestling. Great news for the Pac NW. The Restore Oregon College Wrestling organization is doing a great job bringing back many of the smaller college wrestling programs we have lost over the years. Hoping this momentum can eventually lead to Oregon and Portland State reviving their programs! https://www.linfield.edu/linfield-news/mens-and-womens-wrestling/ Linfield has an exceptional football program, I hope that the wrestling team can follow suit.

    For the life of me, I can't figure out why these guys get so much love. There are 2 guys on this team alone with a better career than either one.
