Key factor we don't win internationally in International Wrestling Posted September 26, 2013 · Report reply This reads to me like more excuses... or some of the same old excuses because this argument has been out there for years. How many guys in the 55, 60, 66, 74 and 84 kilos weight classes can make an NFL roster? Does that make them bad athletes because they're not Ray Lewis or Adrian Peterson? Escobedo made a medal match, but lost. Hump won two. Metcalf caught one of the best guys in the entire world right out of the gates and was one and done. Burroughs won... again. Gavin went 1-1. Bergman lost to a guy who placed fifth and Tervel was fifth... yet again. I think for those out there who look at world talent objectively each and every year, the US did well this season with the guys who made the team. It's pretty typical for American wrestling fans to expect domination by this country's athletes at every level, but it's hard to dominate when the guys on your team just aren't as good at wrestling as the guys from places like Iran, Russia, Georgia and others from that very specific region of the world. Heck, though top five, the US finished just two points ahead of India.
