  1. 1. how many of the states do not have a girls state series? Do you happen to know? 3. Does the national championship include state champions of all classes or just the highest class. If you are the class A state champion, what is the next level that you can advance to? Is there a national Class level or is the national level a collection of all levels?
  2. Thanks. Can you please educate me on a few more areas Are girls allowed to wrestle with boy in high schools at all states, or is it limited to a few states? Are women allowed to wrestle men at the college level, anywhere? Do Class A level champions get an opportunity to wrestle at the national level? Thanks in advance
  3. Mick Mulvaney says some schools and some public transportation in the US may close due to the virus https://www.thenewscommenter.com/news/mulvaney-predicts-schools-will-close-amid-coronavirus-fears/1279680
  4. The sanctions are preventing masks, what makes you so sure the sanctions will prevent the vaccine? I am pretty sure IRI (not my government) will allow vaccines in from Israel. They have made secret trades with Israel before, remember Iran Contra? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. No, using the same logic, they should be allowed to bump up weight classes at higher levels too
  6. It sounds like you are casting aspersions, but let me answer you any way. Iran's imposed government is a backwards theocracy, not argument there. The virus has also spread in Italy, while their government is chaotic, it's not a backward theocracy. so, I would argue in this case, the backward theocracy is not the main cause
  7. Vaccines take a while to approve. If and when the vaccine is produced in mass, and ready for the world, the same sanctions would prevent legal exportation to iran. The sanctions were advertised as being designed to hurt the government of Iran, not the people of Iran. In practice, that has not been the case/
  8. When you disagree with someone, there is not a need to insult them 30 years ago, I was dead against girls wrestling boys in High School. I said girls would be injured, they wouldn't stand a chance, only a sadist would want to see this. Based on the few girls who have won state championships at the high school, I was proven wrong. I will admit this seems to happen only at the lightest weights, presumably because the muscle mass difference is not significant, but it has happened, I was wrong! I believe some day, there may be a woman who is the best wrestler in the 100 lb division, if they had such a weight in Freestyle This whole discussion is hypothetical anyway, since even if the US agreed to is, I doubt UWW would ever allow it. I have said all I am going to say, apparently most of you disagree, I respect your opinions.
  9. You are entitled to your opinion. do you think the girl who just won the state high school championship in NC should have only wrestled girls and stayed in the girls division?
  10. I don't know who JC is. But to answer your question, as of now, I expect all the female wrestlers to get destroyed by their male counterparts. If they trained and competed against men, I expect a few women to be competitive in a few years against men in the lighter weights 100 to 120 pounds. I know this is only at the high school level, and I know North Carolina is not a top tier state, but I am very impressed by a female winning a state championship. It's an amazing accomplishment and I don't any of you would have believed it can happen if someone had predicted it
  11. I thank you from the bottom of my heart
  12. If you need examples, here is a member of the national female Futsal team who passed away due this dreaded virus
  13. This is only remotely related to wrestling, but since I consider some of you as friends, I ask you to consider signing this petition. https://www.change.org/p/world-health-organization-who-lift-all-medical-sanctions-now-to-combat-coronavirus-in-iran?fbclid=IwAR2eJPIVVzeOoV0CMg2Hhq0FHKBfxdBacusH9gLNHDAqRuYQ0JwgeCk9xyU It's a petition to Lift all medical sanctions now to combat Coronavirus in Iran
  14. OK, so let me revise my suggestion: Keep the women's division, but don't deprive them of the opportunity to compete against men in free style and olympics championship. Just like if you are young wrestler, you can compete in the junir's championship, but if you are really good, you can compete in the seniors. I know that this does not apply to most women, but watching this young woman dominate her opponents is so inspiring to me, that I would like to see path/opportunity for some woman winning the olympics in the 45 Kg some day
  15. For the first time, a female wrestler won a state championship. https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/26/us/first-female-wrestler-state-champ-trnd/index.html?fbclid=IwAR3Zz0B57rJKTQOG7NrzYqJF59igvdS1ZXBIjVmDkDfY3xZrH-2w7Wp_SrQ Now here is my very controversial opinion: Make Wrestling a Co-ed sport! I am aware the men will have an advantage in strength and quickness even when they weight the same as women I believe the physical strength is not overwhelming and as evidence by this young woman, it can be overcome by better skills, cardio and mental toughness I am also aware that this would mean that countries like Iran would forfeit matches against women, but that is their problem I expect that women may be competitive in the very lighter weights (50 kg) and non existent in the super heavy weights I expect men to dominate, but some women will be competitive, as demonstrated by this young woman
  16. Iran has closed down the wrestling camps for the national team. All soccer matches are being played without any fans in the stadiums. I hope the extreme measure above will stop the spread of the virus, and everything will be OK in time for the olympics. As an added bonus, Iran now has an excuse for doing badly in the olympics :)
  17. Fair point, so let me put this quote in here “As far as we all know, you’re going to be in Tokyo,” Pound said. “All indications are at this stage that it will be business as usual. So keep focused on your sport and be sure that the IOC is not going to send you into a pandemic situation.” My intent for the previous point was to demonstrated that they are conceding that there is a possibility that they will cancel the Olympics if the virus is out of control, and of course they have no idea where the virus spread will be by then
  18. IOC member Dick Pound says Tokyo Olympic organizers have until late May to see if the virus is under control. If not, “you’re probably looking at a cancellation.” https://t.co/e90SS6Px8B https://thepointsguy.com/news/officials-say-tokyo-2020-cancellation-is-possible-due-to-coronavirus-outbreak/?utm_campaign=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&utm_term=Editorial&utm_content=B921AD5A-581A-11EA-9F71-EDBF96E8478F&fbclid=IwAR1Mc9_O4PPSe9TNnc-qP1Mn0O5c0LeQy1SRjmJuyvqvHN6u8feVf8WAHjQ
  19. OK. I will reluctantly take your bet. I usually hate to place bets when I don't want to win, but at this point, I think it is too good of a bet to pass up for my charity. You are on! I hope you win!
  20. I would be delighted if I am wrong Here is the difference I see CDC issued a pandemic advice for the Corona Virus in the US, they did not do so on Eboli (at least not that I recall) Let's hope I am wrong
  21. At this point, after reading this, https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-02-25/cdc-warns-of-broad-disruption-if-virus-spreads-locally-in-u-s I will be surprised if the Tokyo Olympics go on as planned. I hope I am wrong. This will be terrible for the hard working athletes around the world
  22. I agree with you one 100%. Snyder has already had an amazing career, and dominated his weight class for a good 2-3 years. His weight class has become very competitive, and one of Snyder's weaknesses has been exposed, which is he is not good in an area which he has very little experience in, being on his back. I am sure he will work very hard on that, so even if he does get stuck on his back again, he will do a far better job of fighting it
  23. The use of multiple channels, and the choice to watch sports you want to, instead of just the popular ones, is fantastic. I think and It hope it will be even better in the future with all the streaming options available.
  24. I cannot disagree with anything you wrote here. The number one sport in India is Cricket. I hope the god they don't put that in the Olympics
