    Who will be watching?  
     
    Links can be found on the youtube channel below; although, many of you are in the USA, and will begin a little early/late:
    https://www.youtube.com/user/WrestRusRu
    Some of the bigger names competing:
    57kg:  Zaur Uguev, Azamat Tuskaev, Ramiz Gamzatov, Akhmed Idrisov
    61kg:  Aleksandr Bogomoev, Ramazan Ferzaliev
    65kg:  Gazdhimurat Rashidov, Soslan Ramonov, Nachyyn Kuular, Akhmed Chakaev
    70kg:  David Baev, Israil Kasumov, Magomedrasul Idrisov, Kurban Shiraev (Idrisov and Shiraev moved up to 70)
    74kg:  Zaurbek Sidakov, Magomedrasul Gazimagomedov, Magomed Kurbanaliev, Razambek Zhamalov
    79kg: Akhmed Gazhimagomedov, Gadzhi Nabiev
    86kg:  Artur Naifonov, Dauren Kurugliev, Magomed Ramazanov, Radik Valiev
    92kg:  Alikhan Zhabrailov
    97kg:  Abdulrashid Sadulaev, Shamil Musaev, Magomedkhan Magomedov
    125kg:  Anzor Khizriev, Zelimkhan Khizriev, Alan Khugaev, Baldan Tsyzhipov
     
    I think the National winners will look very similar to the 2019 squad: Uguev, Bogomoev, Rashidov, Baev (or Shiraev), Sidakov, Gadzhimagomedov, Naifonov, Zhabrailov, Sadulaev and A. Khizriev.  
     
    But the Olympic weight classes are the ones that matter here.  Would have been nice to see Baev go to 65 or 74, Gadzhimagomedov to 86.  Should be good!

    Coach_J got a reaction from sisi in Snyder better at NLWC?   
    Not questioning Snyder's phenomenal early results. But definite signs of regression, being decked by Sadulaev in 2018 and then totally shut down by Sharifov in 2019. The international guys are figuring him out; superior cardio and weight training power can only take a single leg so far. Now being outwrestled by Gadson before the injury and then Gadson being handled by Moore does not bode well. Can he turn it around? Of course. Unless he grows as a technician, though, not gonna happen. He's always taken some losses at small meets (being beaten by juice freak Boltukaev, etc.) but I think this recent spell is very different.  You age quickly at this level. The 24 year old cannot and should not train the same as the 18 year old.

    He is. Grey was in his corner. He looked great up until Alirez. What a great tournament for that kid. Stole the Surprise of the Tournament Award from Ragusin.
    He fights the push-out hard instead of conceding the 1 and ends up at risk for giving up 2 so people keep driving him back awkwardly to the cement. Rough way to make a living. 
    Moore looked great. Smooth duck under fire his first 2 among other things. Parris looked great too.
    Props to the Big Red for 2 big stop signs and a 5th even if the Dean win was kind of lackluster. Arujau looked fantastic all tournament.

    Coach J, you nailed it.  You can seldom make a statement about any nationality, religion or race "as a whole"
    Imagine if people in other countries watched the Trump rallies and concluced that is how all of America thinks as a whole.  Right or wrong, the people who attend those rallies represent a significant, but non majority of the US population.

    I've worked and trained with Iranian wrestlers over the years since 1978, when I met Abas Arabi Asli, who fled Iran and went first to Czechoslovakia and then to Sweden; he was actually national freestyle champion at 57 kilos in both Czechoslovakia and Sweden.  He was a great guy, warm-hearted and generous, having me stay at his home in Stockholm for the weekend before I went home to the US after training in Sweden a year.  The team doctor I had in Vasteras, Sweden, was Iranian and treated me very well.  I got to know the Iranian staff and fans at the 1995 Worlds in Atlanta and 1996 Olympics--knowledgeable, fair-minded, crazy for wrestling and supportive of great wrestlers from all nations.  In none of my dealings with wrestlers or everyday citizens from Iran have I gleaned the idea that Iranians as whole hate the US.  My personal anecdotal experience says quite the contrary.

    I was there in 96 when Les Gutches beat defending world & Olympic champ (95 & 92) Kevin Jackson (also WGM in 91) for the team.  He had beaten KJ at nationals that year also.   Another 2X world champ and defending world champ was beaten at 57kg that year for the Olympic team spot.  K Cross beat Terry Brands in one of best 3 match series ever.

    Coach_J reacted to wrestfan in Iranian Friends   
    this is the question nobody can answer perfectly. we never had an accurate poll or something like that. people can only speak based on their own experience. for example everybody in my family and in both my parents family dislike the regime but that doesn't mean everybody in the country hates them as well ! they have their own supporters . I can't give a percentage , nobody can but it's surely less than 50%. probably much less.
    but I can say they are much more unpopular in big cities. people are more religious in smaller places and therefore the regime have more supporters in those places. most of Iranian top wrestlers come from small villages so it makes sense if the majority of them at least don't hate the regime. and I have to say being religious is not always equal to supporting the regime. they may support some elements of the regime but not necessarily the whole system.
    but one thing is for sure that people in Iran are getting less and less religious . I mean comparing to 20 years ago. and to be honest I don't think "religious fundamentalists" exist in Iran, you NEVER hear an Iranian do a suicidal attack anywhere. I believe even those in power are not religious themselves, (at least not as much as they claim) they just use it as a weapon to stay in power.

    Unfortunately, many wrestlers and wrestling fans in Iran support the Iranian regime. Some agree with the regime and some of them have been deceived. I can not speak clearly about this because I live in Iran and I am not interested in going to prison at the moment!
    Iranians, like people all over the world, are influenced by the media, and especially the media of the Iranian regime.
    So it is natural that some (even in this topic) say that Afkari killed someone, because that is what the Iranian regime says in its media.
    You just have to live here to understand what human beings they are. Unfortunately they are everywhere, even in this forum. In Iran, they shout "Death to America" (because they get paid for it), then travel to the United States and gamble with that money in Las Vegas.
    sorry for my English, I used Google translate.

    You seem conflicted to me.  On the one hand you are happy and proud of the freedoms that the US system offers its citizen (and rightly so), on the other hand you seem very upset at people who take advantage of such freedoms by protesting.

    Coach_J reacted to Shiraz123 in Iranian Friends   
    It's not like America where you can spend decades on death row with appeals and such. Stupid system in Iran, need to scrap death penalty entirely in my opinion. Even if they use it with good intentions (they are not) they will execute innocent people inevitably even if it is by accident. 
     
     
     
    Not sure if I understand right but it seems some are using this to say don't complain here in America because Iran is worse. I don't live in the USA and never been there but I disagree. Iran is an Islamic theocracy, one of the dumbest systems of government in the world. Low bar to be better than in terms of personal freedoms if the bar is Iran, lol. How can you even have an Islamic theocracy? Unless I am incorrect and missed a big news story Islam (or any religion) was never proven to be true. And I have talked to more religious Iranians about this and unfortunately they had nothing to say to me after I read the Quran and wasn't impressed. If i'm wrong please inform me because I wouldn't want to miss out on beautiful women in heaven lol.  Iran is also paradise compared to North Korea so maybe they shouldn't complain. Also true as others have said that sanctions are killing many Iranians.
