  1. It’s so weird that Yozzo isn’t in the pic, right? I guess it will forever be a mystery why he wasn’t there... :D
  2. Haha sorry, I didn't know you were being literal! It's unfortunate that Peter Yozzo is missing from history (photographically), but given the way wrestlers used to cut back then I'm sure he had other things on his mind. I'm imagining him in line at the nearest all you can eat buffet and going "ohh noooo, I forgot about the group photoooo", then snapping right out of it and getting another helping of mashed potatoes.
  3. Such a big year for ISU, great storyline. What’s with the no Yozzo pic?
  4. If I remember correctly, JO say out of two consecutive worlds and all the UWW tournaments in-between. He might have brought home some hardware if he was our 65kg rep, but who knows
  5. I believe USAW needs to define the criteria for a ‘21 ORS. Those who meet the criteria can take the RS if they want - the current NCAA rules allow it.
  6. Ah yes, the good old days before modern medicine when people typically died before age 35. What a golden age that was.
  7. Hopefully the wrestlers who contract c19 recover fully. Being a respiratory illness, covid could have long-term effects that could decrease their gas tank, like chronic asthma and bronchial/lung tissue scarring, depending on the severity of the infection. Fortunately for Sadulaev, a lot of his matches don't go long enough to test his conditioning!
  8. But everyone knows now that the secret to beating Dake is to whisper in his ear: “I turned on your wifi last night while you were asleep”
  9. That wasn’t too long after the attacks in Munich, was it? Being a world event and all, was there a lot of added tension in the air? Did it affect the competitors? Was the tournament and camp on lockdown and difficult to get in and out? ,I love the design of that ‘66 ticket stub btw.
  10. Talent and competitive drive for sure, also resources. Environment, food, nutrition, medicine, facilities, gear, technology, education, etc. Look at the way the Olympics medal tables play out.
  11. Yep, Sweden took the laissez-faire approach hoping for herd immunity, and it has been a massive public health failure. Epidemiologists at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health say that a population needs to be in the 70-90% immune range in order to achieve herd immunity, depending on how contagious a disease is. At the start of this month, Sweden's immunity rate was less than 7.5%, so they are not even close to where they need to be. Meanwhile, their death toll is at 8.7 per 1 million people daily - that's almost twice that of the US (4.6 per million/day), and we aren't exactly a global exemplar of Covid containment. Next door however, Norway's daily death rate is less than 0.01 per million. They saw an early rise in Covid cases like Sweden did, but had rolled out a robust c19 strategy in late January that included sheltering & social distancing, testing and stocking medical facilities with supplies. They've controlled the outbreak, at least for the time being.
  12. Thank you for the translation. There's been some discussion of Sadulaev's c19 case here: http://board.themat.com/index.php?/topic/24276-anybody-with-an-update-on-whats-going-on-in-dagestan-via-corona/&do=findComment&comment=524447
  13. Maybe Z was banking on having an Olympic medalist on his roster. I guess he could have gone about it the way Brands and Lee are doing it now, but it's hard not to let a kid go all in and take a shot at the sport's biggest prize
  14. Cejudo is still pretty young, isn’t he? He’s got a lot of retirement to enjoy, which is awesome.
