  1. He was 28 at the time and was at the top of his game. Seems a bit young to retire. Anyone know the story?
  2. Alright let’s broaden this topic to not just PSU insiders. Does anyone have an idea of how Nickal matches up with Taylor? I see Bo closing that gap sooner rather than later.
  3. Nickal seems a great prospect for 86 Kg. It seems everyone is assuming Taylor and Cox meet in the finals. How far back is Nickal? Does he hold his own with Taylor in the room?
  4. That seems to happen often for the host country. Hmm, wonder why?
  5. None of those examples are wrestlers defecting.
  6. What is crazy to me is both Higuchi (freestyle 2016 Olympic silver) and Ota (Greco 2016 Olympic silver) may not be on the team for the 2020 Tokyo games. Both were both in their early 20s (20 and 22) at the 2016 Olympics. Due to domestic competition, both were forced to move weight classes almost immediately after reaching the pinnacle of the sport at such a young age. Ota has found success up a weight winning worlds this year (non-Olympic weight). Higuchi can’t even make the team anymore. After Rio, John Smith mentioned in a few interviews how impressed he was with Higuchi’s sweep single. That is insane depth. I can’t imagine leaving that caliber of an athlete at home at such a young age.
  7. Mijain Lopez is listed for Cuba, but so is Hinds. I hope we get to see Lopez wrestle again.
  8. Thanks for posting, hope he makes his way back.
  9. He made the finals in 2013 at a young age and looked to have a good career ahead of him. Haven’t seen him compete in years. What happened to him?
  10. India started to really see improvement long before 2019. 2008 olympics is when Sushil Kumar and Yogeshwar Dutt did well. Then there were more guys medaling at worlds and junior worlds in subsequent years. But before 2008 there wasn’t much from India on the international scene. I wonder what changes went on in the years leading up to 2008 that led to such rapid improvement.
  11. Israel’s soccer team is decent (multiple players in Europe). They have to qualify out of Europe, where they are a middle of the pack team. They are probably on the same level as Iran, which is one of the better teams in Asia. But it would be nice to see them play each other. There is footage on YouTube of Iran playing Israel back when Israel qualified out of Asia (pre revolution of course).
  12. In what world is Vincenzo Joseph in the Dad bod/chunky category? No way I’d group him with Askren or others that don’t look imposing.
  13. I said I’d take the bet. You still want it or just trying to get attention?
  14. Cox to tech or fall Nickal? Sure, I’ll take the other side of that. What do you want to bet Cinnabon?
