    Dominated him.  TD and turn it was 9-3 then he stopped wrestling.  Ref gave caution & 2 ended 9-5.

    I have had multiple coversations with Lewboo over the years regarding this bout.  I can comment some other time soon, but I'm leaving for Brazil in a few hours.
     
    One thing to keep in mind when trying to score the vid, is that in 1982 all feet to back exposures were only 2 points.  I believe it was changed to 3 the following year.  I know this because Lewboo informed of the rules when I tried to score the vid because it wasn't adding up right (I was giving 3 for feet to back).

    Jordanov defeated Anatoli Belogloazov 10-5 in Kiev, 1983 Worlds.  I don't think he ever wrestled Sergei but I don't think it would've been much of a match.  Sergei just too strong for him.  Jordanov lost to Chris Bollin up a weight class at 125.5, and while Bollin was tough, he surely wasn't a world beater.  Sergei dismantled Jordanov's rival Trstena who went up a weight for the 1987 Worlds.  I think Sergei tech/pinned him.  Jordanov traded wins with Trstena at 52 kg.

    Yeah I know why but I believe it's somewhat of a misconception.

    It has to do with your dominant leg, not your dominant hand.  So, your trail leg should be your power leg, so it can explode up and either drive or cut the corner best.  Think of Fadzaev.  What he does best is cut the corner on his high crotch. He gets deep penetration because he pushes hard off his dominant leg (non-dominant leg actually stays planted), and he cuts the corner faster than his opponents could sprawl and circle away.

    This is true in most sports.  Think about how you would kick a soccer ball across the field. You plant with your non-dominant foot and kick with your power leg (or your trail leg).  You drive off your power leg when throwing a baseball or football.  Same thing in boxing with a "knock-out" punch.

    So some guys may just feel comfortable leading with their non-dominant leg so they have power off their back leg.  Or in other parts of the world, more emphasis is placed on this dominant leg theory and wrestlers lead with their left leg because their right one is dominant and it doesn't matter which hand they grab a leg with. 
     
    But...lead leg in wrestling is usually determined by which hand you attack with. If you are right handed your hi crotch & single will most likely be with your right hand and thus most wrestlers will lead with their right leg unless a coach purposely changes them or that they simply feel comfortable the other way.  For example, I'm left handed and lead right in wrestling but I believe this is because my dad used to box with me when I was young and as a southpaw my right foot is forward and when I learned to wrestle it just felt comfortable to lead right.  Maybe some of those other guys played other combat sports when they were younger and just felt comfortable leading with their left leg.  I really don't know. 

    That said, I don't believe most international wrestlers lead with their left foot.  I think if you took a poll you would see most of them lead with their right foot.  It's just that the best ones seem to lead with their left, and that's simply because lefties have an advantage in any sport, wrestling being one of them.
     
    However, Turkey & Mongolia in the 70s & 80s had an inordinate amount of left leg leads. If you look at films of their wrestlers from that period, most of them are left leg leads. I don't know why though.  Maybe the coaches at the time were on to something.
     
    Many World Champs from the 80s/90s were left leg leads - Beloglazov, Alexeev, Fadzaev, Khadartsev, Khabelov, Gobedjishvili, were all lefties as well as Dave Schultz, Raul Cascaret, & Zeke Jones.

    But...Metcalf hasn't had the luxury of a double elimination pool system. In 1992 Smith lost to Reinoso, who had lost an earlier match to Azizov and then Smith teched Azizov and advanced to the Gold medal match based upon points.  Regarding Slay...yeah he beat Saitiev.  Of course a great accomplishment.  Slay beat Bereket 3-1 to advance to the Gold medal match. In a double elimination pool system, Saitiev would have still been had the chance to keep wrestling.  If given the chance, you think Saitiev wouldn't have either teched or pinned Bereket?  He would have, and thus would have won the pool based on points and advanced to the Gold medal match. 
     
    "If you are the best, and lose early, then you should have lost to a finalist and take third..."
     
    Not the way the brackets are drawn and stacked these days and with 15 mins rest in between matches.  in 2013 Metcalf lost to World Champ Taghavi first round who then lost a 3-2 match to Kontoev who then lost a 7-5 to the Georgian who then lost a 6-5 match to eventual World Champ Safaryan.  A pool system would have shown a different outcome.

    quick__single got a reaction from BigTimeFan in Ed Ruth   
    Salas Perez appeared to get injured in the first 7 seconds of the match.  Not sure if it was knee or ankle but he definitely looked impaired for the duration of the match.  He just wasn't moving like he normally does and was able to generate zero offense.
     
    Those key locks (kimuras) were 100% illegal.  Against the joint where Ruth had nowhere to go except bail or get his arm broken.  The ref finally caught on towards the end of the match and cautioned him.
     
    He hiptossed Ruth 4x I think.  But yeah he was injured and prob out of shape and went for broke on his defense putting himself in danger on the way.
     
    BTW Perez looked 50% bigger than Ruth.
     
    I think Ruth has a very promising future and can medal.  Kid's incredible.  Just hasn't figured that freestyle thing out just yet.  Looks like he doesn't quite have the "feel" yet.

    The list of great par terre wrestlers all come from the 80s when turning was at a premium due to the rules in place at the time.  After that, it was only the wrestlers who adapted to the changes such as B. Saitiev and Aldatov.  There are a few others, but for the most part par terre is boring and the emphasis has turned to reshots/counter offense and pushouts. 
     
    I believe that with the recent award of 4 point exposure from feet to back we are now seeing more trending of throws e.g. fireman's and more focus there in training efforts.

    I think you mean Reich, not Dietrich.  That 52 kg weight class was one of the most competitve I've ever seen in a 10 year period.  The top 4 place winners in 1983 were all World Champs at one time.  In 1986 Jordanov was upset by newcomer Junior World Champ Yong Sik of PRK who was only 19 years old.  Silver medalist Sato went on to become Olympic Champ 2 years later.  Obviously Sik didn't compete because of the boycott but went up a weight in 1989 and won Worlds in Switzerland, beating 1988 Olympic Silver medalist Mohammedian of IRI in the finals. 
     
    Back to the par terre thing.  I'm surprised no one has mentioned Vladimir Toguzov.  Had the best ankle lace in the world, better than Smith's IMO. 
     
    Yong Sik was also one of the best top wrestlers of that era.  He would get multiple turns from one hold, and usually directly from a takedown. 
     
    These days you won't see many guys be brutal on top simply because they don't give you enough time.  But the best guy out there right now is Aldatov.  No one's even close.

    Yes.  He inside tripped Romero for first TD.  Then in second period he knee blocked and cartwheeled over a Romero footsweep attempt for the fall.  Don't ask me how he did it, but that's what he did.
     
    The trip against Williams was similar to the trip against the Bulgarian here in 2002:
