    Do you realize how lame it is that you keep dropping ":)"? 
    If you are going to try to win arguments by pretending that you are a smug idiot at least up your game and drop ;)

    I believe only Geraei and Nejati have a chance to win the gold. but they are not the main favorite, only one of the favorites. among top 4-5. it's more possible if Iran finishes the Greco competition without a gold medal. the last time Iran won a gold medal in Greco (Worlds or Olympics) was Sourian in 2014 ! and since 2015  it was just bronze . 2 or 3 each year.
    Iran won 3 quotas (60,77 and 130) in Kazakhstan and have to qualify 3 more, 67, 87 and 97. Bana is confident about 87 and 97. but it will be hard to qualify in 67. there are some world medalists in Asia not qualified yet. I think they will send Geraei junior, Nouri and Saravi to the Asian QT.

    Coach_J reacted to PSUSMC in US Greco lost a GREAT coach today   
    Coach Mark Halvorson, the head coach of De La Salle HS (Concord CA) and the CYC located in Concord, passed away this morning while traveling in Southern CA.
    Mark coached numerous National Champs, age-group World Team Members (including Junior World Bronze Medalist Peyton Omania - who was also his 1st CA HS State Champion (2018)) and Senior National & World Teamers as well as US Olympian Robby Smith (whom he coached in Rio).
    He was an incredible technician in all 3 styles, but was one of the best in the country when it came to Greco.
    He will be greatly missed.

    In the mid-70s to mid-80s, the Swedes had some real warriors in greco.  Cruise through the opening sportscaster and get to Malmquist, Skiold, and Lundell.  Great, exciting classic greco, not just pushing and shoving and grabbing hands.  Was able to train there in 1980-81, given my flying lessons in many competitions (still wince when I see a grand amplitude throw).  Enjoy!

    Gimp, you used data from the two hosting countries, ignoring that athletes from many countries will be there. 
    Also your own graphs show Serbia much higher now than October 20th, and France at about the same levels as October 20th.
    Most of the rest of Europe has much higher cases now.  Almost double.
    US cases are off the charts compared to 2 months ago.

    Great, you've listed an example of a sport where male athletes are significantly more popular.  Others include football, baseball, and hockey-the sports with professional leagues with huge built up brands.  
    Sports where women are more or equally as popular in the united states as the male counterparts:  Tennis, Figure Skating, volleyball, swimming, Soccer, gymnastics.  All of those women's sports are more popular than men's wrestling (except volleyball, which I know nothing about but probably gets more olympic air time). 
    If you want an example that's most similar to wrestling, why don't we just use MMA? In MMA, the women fighters sell a significant number of PPVs, and Ronda Rousey was as big of a star as anybody other than Conor and Lesnar. If women's wrestling is supported through marketing by outlets like flo and financially by USAW, it could prove to be a great way to draw new fans to the sport.

    I believe Coach_J is saying that sometimes when you invest time, energy and marketing effort to expose the ‘product’ ... demand appears and you can build on that.  
     
    But if you don’t invest and keep the product somewhat unexposed, it is a lot harder to find an audience.  
     
    All fair.  The market argument still applies in my mind but like most things, you need to find an investor to help promote it early on and take the risk that the investment will pay off.  I think many on here are saying that taking that risk seems like a good idea.

    lol I refuse to go above good. I would say great if he showed something more in the bronze match. We have seen wrestlers his age (or even younger) do more at better tournaments. Asgarov, Chamizo, Sadulaev, Otoguro come to mind. Wrestfan only said he only did OK anyway so be happy with good lol.

    Amouzad wins bronze with a 4 - 0 over Andreyeu. His problem right now at this young age is against top guys he can control long portions of the match but has a hard time scoring. We saw that against Uguev and in his bronze match.
     
    Overall a strong performance, in a sense you could say he already has a better career than Atri (Atri failed at junior worlds, U23 worlds and three times at senior worlds) lol. The most impressive thing about Amouzad this tournament actually might be that Uguev couldn't turn him, because he destroyed everyone else on top.
