  1. just read the article, it just says he was a college wrestler, nothing about Nationals or that he was a champ. The wrestling community helped him a great deal as well....

    My colleagues were helping me, too: checking in, texting, telling me what to do and what to expect. When I got in a panicky mood, I would reach out to my friends and see what they thought I should do. And my wrestling community: I am 26 years out of college, but I was getting texts from old coaches and teammates and current wrestlers. These guys are tough, tough as nails, and it helped me. When I was wrestling and I was tired and my opponent was strong, and I would say to myself, “Am I going to roll over and take this or am I going to get up and do something about it?” I channeled that.

    After the wrestlers texted me, I would get up and go walk in the yard. I walked as fast as I could, which was pretty slow, and I tried to take a breath and hold it 10 seconds and maybe expand my lungs. No matter how bad I felt the whole time, I made sure I got out of bed, I put on a mask, and I went out into my yard. I walked around the yard five times. I did not let my lungs get stagnant. By that point I had figured out other strategies too. For example, if you are going to lie down, you have to lie in a prone position, on your chest. It makes it easier to breathe.


  2. Yeah, Sheik didn't seem too convinced of that death being "suicide" either (he thinks the Shah ordered the guy killed). The Wikipedia article says the Sheik was a bodyguard for the Shah of Iran for awhile, also.
    He was a bodyguard for the Shah . .and I'm sure a darn good one

    The Sheik trained up in Minnesota for a while. Coached in the early days of the Minnesota Wrestling Club. Had some influence on the development and style up here. 

    it was definitely worth the watch Jason. And it touches on how he went to the USA after the death of Iran's greatest of all time committed suicide. NYC then Minny. He is a cult figure!


  4. wow, what an article. There is absolutely nothing political about this. Ignorance maybe.

    Castro, who brought 19 athletes to the event, said he believes part of the overreaction is related to ire directed at President Donald Trump. Castro said he concurred with his school president, Jerry Falwell Jr., who argued on Fox News earlier in the day that the coronavirus was being used by Democrats to impeach the president.

    “Call me a conspiratorist or whatever,” Castro said. “Is that to minimize what’s going on? Absolutely not. But you cannot view this from a prism without being political to some degree. It’s too obvious.”


  5. great thread. being a former D2 wrestler in PA, a lot of these schools thrive off of getting former D1 wrestlers highly recruited out of HS, they have issues at D1 or can't make the team, etc, end up at a smaller school with less pressure and go on to achieve AA status.
