  1. When discussing talent, it is easy to lump together ceilings and floors. Some people start off with a higher floor: from an early age, success is easier. But if we are talking about medaling at worlds, rather than success at the youth level, then the ceiling is what matters. What is the relation between where you start off and where you end up? Ben Askren's case suggests that the relationship between the ceiling and the floor is not clear: he had little success, became obsessed, and later had huge success. Where is the average person's ceiling? How would we know? Ossetia has 700,000 people and produces world champions almost every year - some years, they produce more than one. Do we think that Ossetians are genetic superhumans, or is culture more likely the reason that they have great wrestlers?
  2. I don't intend to go back and rewatch every Ramonov match online, but he is one of my favorites and I've studied his setups in detail. He is primarily an elbow passer. Just watch the final vs. Asgarov and look for the setups to the scores. 1st, 2nd, and 4th scores: elbow pass. 3rd score: arm drag.
  3. The number of wrestlers in Iran has dropped from 1,600,000 to 45,000? Can that be right?
  4. https://www.yahoo.com/news/virus-limits-next-tokyo-olympic-064704752.html
  5. Rear standing is a reversal, but not a takedown. Rear standing on the feet is also the only situation that can result in a flash takedown, when one hand touches the ground. Specific rules for this position cause a lot of confusion. Are they needed?
  6. Has this rule changed since 2015 (Brown/Wilps final)?
  7. Page 3: "The sports nationality is defined as the right granted to a wrestler by United World Wrestling to represent a country of which he/she does not necessarily hold the nationality."
  8. Was there a press release on the Ramonov/Geduev bans? Were they banned from competition for a specific time period, or just shut out of the Yarygin?
  9. I haven't gotten the chance to listen to the podcast yet. Is PROWL involved with this, or did that fall through?
  10. "USA Wrestling will exclusively use FloArena, the sport's premier turnkey meet management software and scoring platform, through 2020 for a minimum of six major events each year, including World Team Trials, University and UWW Cadet Nationals, US Open, UWW Junior World Team Trials, the Dave Schultz Memorial International, and the Bill Farrell Memorial International Open." It looks like the contract is only for the events in bold -- since PROWL didn't exist at that time, I assume that Flo would not (necessarily) be covering PROWL. Whether Flo gets the PROWL contract or not, PROWL's format would provide about two months worth of regular storylines for them to cover leading up to the WTT.
