    I've seen many examples, some of the most vivid in track and field.  In this one, you can call Anaya a fool or the ultimate example of class and sportsmanship for his actions:

    In this one, the runner also shows great humanity and sportsmanship:  https://www.inspiremore.com/ivan-fernandez-anaya-abel-mutai/

    Well, Dave Schultz was something else.  He was as fierce a competior as anyone, but also a great sportman.  He was friends with and respected by the iranians, Russians, Bulgarians and every other nation.  There will never be anyone like him

    Here's one of my favorite displays of wrestling sportsmanship.
    Dave Schultz in the corner of Kenny Monday, the man who beat him out for the Olympic spot, in the Olympic finals. After Kenny wins in overtime, Dave carries him around the mat on his shoulders (at 6:15 in the video). Which of our current guys could you see doing something like this?

    This exmple is not wrestling related per se.  I really respect athletes who show sportsmanship, dignity and humanity.
     
    This high school basedball pitcher just struck out his childhool friend to advance his team to the state championship.  I love how he conducted himself after such a big accomplishment.  He has his prioirities straight

    Not in my life has a 1-time NCAA 5th placer and a 1-time world 9th placer ever been able to draw as much attention to himself as all the guys who actually won those tournaments combined.  Happy trails...

    "Wrestling Room All-American."  Guy who can beat everyone in practice but when you take the mat out in the gym in front of a crowd just can't get it done; he loses to opponents the guys he beats in the wrestling have or would have beaten.

    Coach_J got a reaction from fadzaev2 in What is this technique?   
    Works well when the defensive man blocks off your tricep and won't let you switch out front to a double on your head outside leg attack.  Lacing the arm inside and collecting the far ankle/calf negates the arm block and actually leads, in my opinion, to more possibilities.  Kharchilava is the master of this--his coach was Anatoli Belaglazov with Club Dynamo back in Russia.  Great lineage of technical mastery.

    Greco brackets are full of Armenian names that aren't representing Armenia. Lots of "exporting" or heritage ties bringing more good wrestlers into the mix. I don't have a problem with it as long as federations/nations follow the rules.

    Coach_J got a reaction from Alwayswrestling in Breakdown of two wrestlers from North Ossetia Alania.   
    So looking at the recently posted '88 wrestle-off between Carr and Metzger, was stoked to see Carr with his variation of the Alania/Baev Dump.  At this time, it was just called a duck (or misdirection duck) and morphed into a variation now called the Super Duck (without the head control).  At the :55 second mark, Carr tries it but is countered.  At 4:07, he converts after a hard counter by Metzger.  Both these guys were so good.  The inside trips hit by both were ahead of their time (3:05 and 4:41).  Love how Carr is a stand-up wrestler in neutral, going for that famous single leg snatch and not getting bogged down on his knees.  Thank you again, Coach Fiorito, for starting the thread and getting me thinking about technique.  Have been drilling the Alania tape and even showed it to my kids, pushing them to think about their approach to technique.

    Hi I'm Coach Fiorito and you may be familiar with my Youtube channel Wrestling Mastery. In my latest breakdown I chose to cover a very powerful technique that's not used by the masses.  For most of us it's not an unfamiliar combination of positions, but definitely when used together a new move for most.  Both wrestlers I cover that use this technique exceptionally well come out of the same powerhouse region of wrestling, North Ossetia Alania in Russia.  This is one of David Baev's go to techniques and a position Soslan Ramonov will look for.  For this reason I gave the move the name ALANS DUMP. 
    For those that don't know about North Ossetia Alania, it's home to the Alans International a qualifier for the Yarigin. And a close rival to Dagestan. Khetag Tsabolov, David Baev, Soslan Ramonov, and Zaurbek Sidakov are a few world beaters from this region. Hope you enjoy my video.

    I think it was a little aggressive but could have been returned with a complimentary slap and all would have been fine.  It was certainly not in the league of Joe Warren-style punching!  https://www.flowrestling.org/video/6746560-joe-warren-likes-to-open-with-a-hard-club
