  1. I do not know, I was presumptuous
  2. Great point! I hear the former coaches of the Mongolian wreestling team have started an online class on how to take loss gracefully :)
  3. 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
  4. 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 https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6ln1z7
  5. The only times recently he's needed rooting is when he is up against US (Cox)
  6. Great questions, and I do not know the answers. My information is limited to the Iranian source that I shared At this point, I beleieve the fat lady is warming up her vocal chords.
  7. Love the link. I am doing to do what I hate, which is go on a tangent completely unrelated to this thread. I enjoyed watching Karimi's physical therapy video. I would say he is very close to 100%. Interesting that they refer to him as a 97 Kg wrestler.
  8. I predict the event will be cancelled. Apparently, you need to have 8 out of the top 10 ranked teams agree to participate, and at the moment, US, Iran, Japan and India are against having the games. Russia really wants to games, but I just don't see a path forward. https://www.khabarvarzeshi.com/fa/news/267680/ایران-آمریکا-ژاپن-هند-و-مخالفِ-کُشتی-در-کرونا
  9. Man, I hope NBC hires you as the analyst for the Olympics broadcast. Your analysis is top notch!
  10. an Iranian coach just made an interesting comment. This is just his opinion and it's not based on any facts, but I find his opinion interesting He said, "The 2021 Olympics could be cancelled or postponded. Alternatively, they go have the olympics as scheduled, but potentially cancel sports that presnet a higher risk of spreading the virus, such as wrestling" I had not thought about this option, but it's not unreasonable. I can see the go on with soccer, tennis, weightlifting and diving, but cancel wrestling and Judo.

  14. Let me try to bring this thead back to the original questions: On the good news, there have been some very promising developments in the discovery of a few vaccines On the bad news, I am not confident that the vaccines will be availabe for mass distribution in time for the olympics. My assumption is that the vaccine must be available for mass usage 3-4 months before the olympics. It's going to be very tight. I will give the olympics pf 2021 a 40% chance of happening as scheduled
  15. I remember you and others said there could only be one explanation for his actions. You were right. This is just shameful. What is it about the Iran GR wrestlers?
  16. You previously ask I attached an artcile that headlined COVID-19 has killed 100 grocery store workers.. If you do a simple search, you will find similar articles in every region. Grocery clerks have been hit disproprotionally higher than most other professions
  17. No one made aware of the no Pee-pee poicy

  19. Once again, you and I agree coach J What do you think of the slap to the face by Barramov before souryan head butted him?
  20. Thanks, I did not realize they were a communist country. But then again, I never said I knew much :)
  21. Very interesting analysis. I wonder why Mongolia boycotted?
  22. Yes, I agree with 1984. People like Jordanov, Beloglazov, FadZaev, and Khadartsev were deprived of a chance to compete in the 1984 olympics. It has to be a giant * Based on your original question, I went back and looked at all world championships, of course Russia and USSRA won most, but here are the winners Year Dates City and host country Team champion 1951 26–29 April Helsinki, Finland Turkey 1954 22–25 May Tokyo, Japan Turkey 1957 1–2 June Istanbul, Turkey Turkey 1959 1–5 October Tehran, Iran Soviet Union 1961 2–4 June Yokohama, Japan Iran 1962 21–23 June Toledo, United States Soviet Union 1963 31 May – 2 June Sofia, Bulgaria Soviet Union 1965 1–3 June Manchester, United Kingdom Iran 1966 16–18 June Toledo, United States Turkey 1967 12–14 November New Delhi, India Soviet Union 1969 8–10 March Mar del Plata, Argentina Soviet Union 1970 9–11 July Edmonton, Canada Soviet Union 1971 27–30 August Sofia, Bulgaria Soviet Union 1973[a] 6–9 September Tehran, Iran Soviet Union 1974 29 August – 1 September Istanbul, Turkey Soviet Union 1975 15–18 September Minsk, Soviet Union Soviet Union 1977 21–23 October Lausanne, Switzerland Soviet Union 1978 24–27 August Mexico City, Mexico Soviet Union 1979 25–28 August San Diego, United States Soviet Union 1981 11–14 September Skopje, Yugoslavia Soviet Union 1982 11–14 August Edmonton, Canada Soviet Union 1983 26–29 September Kiev, Soviet Union Soviet Union 1985 10–13 October Budapest, Hungary Soviet Union 1986 19–22 October Budapest, Hungary Soviet Union 1987 26–29 August Clermont-Ferrand, France Soviet Union 1989 31 August – 3 September Martigny, Switzerland Soviet Union 1990 6–9 September Tokyo, Japan Soviet Union 1991 3–6 October Varna, Bulgaria Soviet Union 1993 25–28 August Toronto, Canada United States 1994 25–28 August Istanbul, Turkey Turkey 1995 10–13 August Atlanta, United States United States 1997 28–31 August Krasnoyarsk, Russia Russia 1998 8–11 September Tehran, Iran Iran 1999 7–10 October Ankara, Turkey Russia 2001 22–25 November Sofia, Bulgaria Russia 2002 5–7 September Tehran, Iran Iran 2003 12–14 September New York, United States Georgia Year Dates City and host country Team champion Men's freestyle Men's Greco-Roman Women's freestyle 2005 26 September – 2 October Budapest, Hungary Russia Hungary Japan 2006 25 September – 1 October Guangzhou, China Russia Turkey Japan 2007 17–23 September Baku, Azerbaijan Russia United States Japan 2008 11–13 October Tokyo, Japan — — Japan 2009 21–27 September Herning, Denmark Russia Turkey Azerbaijan 2010 6–12 September Moscow, Russia Russia Russia Japan 2011 12–18 September Istanbul, Turkey Russia Russia Japan 2012 27–29 September Strathcona County, Canada — — China 2013 16–22 September Budapest, Hungary Iran Russia Japan 2014 8–14 September Tashkent, Uzbekistan Russia Iran Japan 2015 7–15 September Las Vegas, United States Russia Russia Japan 2016 10–11 December Budapest, Hungary — — — 2017 21–26 August Paris, France United States Russia Japan 2018 20–28 October Budapest, Hungary Russia Russia Japan 2019 14–22 September Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan Russia Russia Japan Other than Iran in 1961, the only other non Russia/USSR team to win in domianting fashion was Turkey in 1951.
