    Mongolia was mentioned above, which reminds me of a Mongolian, who wrestledfor CCCP/Russia in the early 70's....Roman Dmietriev/105.5.  He was a little block of "dynomite".   I have him on super 8/transferred to video wrestling in the one of the first USA/USSR dual meets in this country @ McGaw Hall/Northwestern.

    GockeS reacted to dman115 in Vaccination retirement   
    So those on their high horse who know what is best for everyone else and think their way of thinking is how ALL people should think, please answer me this...if you are vaccinated, didn't you do your part for the greater good?  Didn't you do exactly what YOU are preaching??  Aren't you confident that you have drastically reduced the chance you will be symptomatic, and more importantly not at risk of dying?  Thus, why do you care who chooses to be more at risk than yourself??  Seriously, why does that bother you that others have different perspectives and thoughts around what is okay from a risk perspective than you?  The only thing I can think of is you are concerned for the 0.0001% of the population that, for very specific medical reasons, can't get vaccinated?  Hate to break it to you but that is the crappy hand they were dealt in life and probably have a lot more things to worry about than Covid. 
    Have yet to hear any of the pushers for mandatory vaccines be able to answer these questions...I'll wait for Billy...for kehlner, etc.
    I did my part for the "greater good" of society...to me it is on those that chose to not get vaccinated and get sick, and God forbid die.  I for one will never life in a country that forces their citizens to take a medicine they do not want to take...nor walk around with a vaccine passport...are you f'ing kidding me!?!?

    How about no points for pushouts, just keep track of them.  Then if the match ends in a tie, use pushouts to determine the winner.  If tied on pushouts, last score/biggest scoring move wins.

    I wouldn't say every one was exactly the right call as per the rules.
    Here we see Gable initiating his own attack on Petriashvili before the georgian got his foot out, it should have been 4 for him.

    I love the rules right now. Thinking back on how the rules have changed in the past, I remember back in the late 80's you could have continuous leg laces but not gut wrenches, if I remember correctly. I remember at some point in the 90's they changed the rules so that you couldn't get points from continuous leg laces or guts. You had to score another way and then could go back to it. Then they changed it so that you could score continuously with either one. There also used to be the hand to hand rule, where if you went hand to hand when being turned, they only got 1 point. I was disconnected from wrestling for many years and then started following it again during the ball grab years. I was horrified at the rules at the time. As someone who wrestled freestyle for 12 years and enjoyed it more than folkstyle, I didn't even recognize the sport. I love where the rules are now. Maybe some of the resident experts could shed light on why the hand to hand rule was eliminated or why they went back to continuous turns. There are always tweaks to the rules that can be made, but the product now is a good one.

    GockeS reacted to denger in Freestyle Rules are Excellent   
    I think I'd be a fan of a step out rule. It'd be a little annoying at first, but at least we'd develop applicable mat awareness. However, I also appreciate the NCAA extended circle rules that keep folk style wrestlers in danger outside of the boundary, essentially eliminating the stall on the edge. I don't know - can see pros to both.

    Having some boring matches doesn’t mean the rules are bad! There are boring games of every sport on Earth. In aggregate, these are the best rules we have had in my lifetime by leaps and bounds. We have chased the dragon of forcing action before and we ended up with years and years of gimmicky crap.

    You guys dont believe in energy pathways?  Phosphogenic, aerobic, anaerobic.  All 3 get used fairly extensively in a wrestling match.

    Here are two names to more than just consider...... Valentine Jordanov  8 world and Olympic Gold Medals.  2 bronze and 2 silver....On the Olympic side it's 1 gold and 1 bronze...the bronze coming at the end of his career.  Alexander Medved has 3 Olympic Gold, 7 World Gold and 1 silver and 1 bronze also at the World Championships.  To me, these may be, at least in part,  the benchmarks.

    When you talk GOAT, I can think of some serious contenders.....Satiev of course, but people need to watch some of these guys in there prime....Arsen Fadzaev, Sergei Belaglozov, Levan Tediashvili, Alexander Medved....close behind John Smith, and I have to throw in Bruce Baumgartner just because he has the world record with 13 World and Olympic Medals and many competitions with David Gobedshvili.  Then there is Valentine Jordanov of Bulgaria.  There are great ones who only competed for a short time and were great...the one I think of is Ivan Yarigan who retired to become the CCCP National Coach for a long time.
