    Coach_J reacted to wrestfan in Iran Wrestling News   
    Yes as far as I know they test all medal winners and some other wrestlers, but I think testing medal winners is mandatory
    I really don't know to be honest, obviously he is not the smartest person on the planet, I mean look at the match, he is not even a good actor ! he could fake this injury after 3 or 4 minutes to make it look more real. not with only 6 seconds to go ! and just after that show, he is almost walking with no problem !!
    he was a nobody until few months ago, I never heard his name until he won the nationals, then he won all his matches in the league and finally by winning the Takhti Cup (and beating Ramin Taheri) he forced the national coaches to consider him. but it's hard to believe a nobody can improve at this rate ! It was always suspicious because he was super strong.
    well it's not like medicines and drugs are impossible to find, most of them are being produced inside Iran, the shortage of medicine is mostly about some certain drugs. and come on if you pay good money you can find anything you want. Iran is a big big country with lots of borders, easy to smuggle anything you want in. people are suffering because they have to pay more to get the same medicine but it's not like you can't find them to buy.

    Strikes me as someone you could beat 10 times in a row and he fully believes he will beat you next time every single time.

    Commenters are also leaving out the fact that Amine only relatively recently has been trained by Belaglazov.  His trajectory in freestyle over the past two years has been impressive.

    World champ mentality. 
    Not saying he is currently a world champ, just saying where his head is probably at as a 2x world champion

    A few impressions of my travels in Russia.  In Moscow, one of our group members, who is of Lebanese descent, was detained by police for looking "Caucasian" (from the Caucasus mountains).  Our guide had to intervene so our guy wasn't taken into the police station.  Yes, being dark-skinned is enough for the police to detain anybody they damn well please over there.
    In Belarus, we were invited to the "house" of the local wrestling federation.  After our bus wound in and out of a neighborhood most comparable to Borat's village (corrugated tin roofs, no glass in the windows, chickens all over, etc.) we came to a clearing where there stood the "house," complete with security wall all around and a guy with a machine gun standing guard.  The place was opulent, a complete contrast to the neighborhood we passed through.  We asked how the federation could build such a house and were told "we make business."  We asked what kind of business and were told, "Yes, make business."  One of our group members asked, "Like a computer business," and the answer was, "Yes, we make computer business."  My take: best to stop asking questions and break out the vodka.
    When we were on our way out, I had purchased a Russian army dagger with scabbard for my son in the Moscow flea market (that is a whole story in itself).  At the airport, the instructions on the wall said that all items, such as knives, should be packed securely in check-through luggage, which mine was.  When my bag went through the x-ray it was pulled from the conveyor and within minutes I was called over, at which point an older female security person holding my son's prize dagger began shouting at me and shaking the dagger at me.  I didn't know what she was saying, and a guard with a machine gun came over and starting babbling and pointing at me as well.  Our guide was busy at the ticket counter and didn't notice what was going on until things got heated.  The guy with the machine kept pointing for me to go someplace off in the distance and I kept telling him I wasn't going anywhere.  Things got bad when the guard tried to grab my arm to make me go with him and I smacked his hand away and told him to get his f.cking hands off me, at which point he pointed the machine gun at me.  Needless to say, that got my attention.  Our guide came over and, to make a long story short, the dagger was considered property of the Russian government and is not legally allowed to leave the country, which I had no clue about.  The guard was trying to arrest me for smuggling.  Much more to the story but suffice it to say I'm safely still alive in the good old US of A.

    Hey Coach,  just to fill you in a little bit, Gilman started his trip all by himself in Vladivazkaz, Ossetia  and trained at a Russian camp and stayed in dorms. There he met two brothers from Dagestan who invited him to go back to Dagestan and wrestle there. Gilman talks about traveling through Grozny, Chechnya then up into the mountains of Dagestan on old dirt roads with very small villages in the middle of nowhere. The two brothers hooked him up with rides and a place to stay in Dagestan. Gilman went 5-0  in a local tournament up in the mountains in a small village in Dagestan. He said the fans and the other wrestlers treated him very warmly. (I wonder if Gilman hooked up the brothers and the people he stayed with nice Iowa wrestling attire or Team USA gear. :D. ) Oh yeah, one more thing in the story, Gilman said his luggage was lost on the flight there and he only had one set of clothing throughout his whole three week trip. Hilarious the way he described it.  Gilman told Bader that there was so much more to his story that he could talk about. Would love to hear a Part 2 of the interview.

    Would love to hear the interview with Bader, but put off by the headline link on the frontpage that takes us to a pay site if we want to hear the story.  Bait and switch to boost someone else's bank account.  Either give us the story or don't chump us with a headline story we have to pay for.

    Not sure but he hangs with everyone and pulls the occasional upset.  Has improved dramatically since starting college and will continue to get better.  On academic scholarship but loves wrestling and has earned his way into the starting line-up.  More stories like this and more young men like Jack.

    Good analysis. He showed tremendous agility with the ankle whizzer, particularly the first time.  The international guys will be a lot leaner and more technically sound than Cass though.
