    This guy is pure theater.  He could win the Olympics, or get DQ'd out of the first round for cold spraying the mat ref.  And neither result would be a surprise.

    Micic and Amine proved (emphasis on "proved") they are in the top 5 in the world.  Wrestling would be better off if they were kept out of the tournament?  Made to wrestle for only one country when they legally possess dual citizenship because "patriots" don't like it?  Has world wrestling gotten even better, more competitive, and more challenging since the Soviet break-up?  God bless UM and any other place that legally and by the established rules allows a young person to pursue their potential.
    Better to have a situation like Miron Kharchiliava's?  Won the Soviet junior national championship but was not allowed by the Soviet sports authorities to compete in the Junior World Championship; they sent the ethnic Russian Miron beat in the finals instead.  He defects to the US, and when the Soviet Union breaks up he is by law supposed to wrestle for the Republic of Georgia.  The problem is that he's Abkhazian, and the Georgians killed his father and cousins in their civil war.  Russia had not yet annexed Abkhazia, so he couldn't wrestle for Russia, Georgia, the US, or Abkhazia in his prime years as a wrestler.  A true man without a country.
    Once he finally achieved US citizenship, he was near 40, injured, and well past his prime.  A shame he was never given an opportunity.
    Let these young guys wrestle.  If they follow the rules, put in the time and sacrifice, more power to them.  Especially if they are training with a lot of young US kids, showing them what it takes to reach the highest level.

    I just read an interview with Hassan Yazdani.  To me, the interview highlights the issue with Yazdani
     
    He prides himself in finishing all his matches in the first half, and he says I will not allow the match to reach the second half.
    Taylor is the one guy who can withstand the storm.  Granted, Yazdani built a large lead, but the lead was not good enough to withstand Taylor's come back when Yazdani is gassed.
    Yazdani needs to do at least one of two things
    Improve his endurance conditioning so he does not run out of gas change his wrestling style against taylor, take it slow in the first half, and go all out in the second half I believe that Taylor does not have a chance against Yazdani when Yazdani is not out of gas, and history demonstrates that Yazdani does not have a shot against Taylor when Yuzdani is out of gas!

    He does find a way to mention his Tedeev win, and even the announcers mentioned it it when he was coaching Yazdani on TV.  To be fair, if I had ever defeated an Olympic champion, I would mention it all the time too.  I might even change my name to "the guy that beat Olympic champion, Tedeev" :)
    For our non Persian speaking friends, if you watch anything, go to minute 13:58 to watch an interview with Hassan Yazdani as a kid.  He was as affable then as he is now
    The 9 year kid who was interviewed, I think he said his name is Mohammad Hosseini, I am going to remember that name, perhaps we will hear about him in cadets or juniors in a few years.

    Lol, no it was just a stupid assumption on my part.  Although as cousins, there is some resemlence
    They were both Ossetians , became Ukranian Citizen later, so it's the Ossetians who all look alike.
    Ossetian are very close relatives of Iranians, although you would not guess that by looking at the Tedeev cousins
