  1. In the US, after a positive test you had to quarantine 10 days after your last day of symptoms. After 10 days of quarantine without symptoms you don't need a negative test to stop quarantine. My understanding is that you can still have a positive test for months after the virus is gone, because you can still be shedding dead virus particles that are not infectious at all but will give a positive. Depending how frequently he was tested before, he could have the remnants of a month old case.
  2. If someone wins Gold, how likely are they to go to this Worlds?
  3. I am not knowledgeable at all about WFS but it does not seem to be the craziest result that could happen based on the US talent and knowing that surprising results happen in every tournament... Look at Penn State wrestlers winning all four finals when they were favorites in only one
  4. So in six weight classes, we are favored in two and maybe one more? Doesn't seem like such a long shot. I would rather win more individual golds than a fictional team championship, so if adeline and tamara perform and we have one any other to have a break out performance, I will be happy
  5. The IFJ rankings are not subjective, but are best on results on the world judo tour. It is a good way to promote the sport by having meaningful tournaments all over the world, but makes it an expensive sport for the national teams
  6. Hard to imagine any top level coaches who are completely unbiased. Human nature dictates that they will favor the guy the are closest to if the decision is subjective
  7. Current system is really good. If more tweaking is done to give further advantage to the favorite it will hurt us. No real evidence that Yianni has a better shot to medal than JO. Who thought Snyder had a better chance to medal than Varner in 2015? Or Cox was the best option in 2016 with zero international experience?The list goes on and on of guys who "shouldn't have" been on the world or Olympic team and went on to medal.
  8. I think he was the guy who described Dake's throw as a hate crime committed against Nolf
  9. Thanks for the link. Some humorous translations: the defeat of Jordan Burroughs to Kyle Duck, the elimination and failure of the black American giant to reach the Tokyo Olympics Also: issue that happened to "Jayden Cox", the world champion and opponent of Alireza Karimi in the 92 kg final of the 2019 World Championships, and this muscular figure did not reach the weightlifting ceremony
  10. The russian system works for Russia because they have the best and deepest wrestling talent in the world. If you took the top Russians and made the deciding factor skill at tiddlywinks they would still have a great team
  11. If coaches or a committee made the decision Cox does not make the 2016 team. The current system has a reasonable compromise of giving a slight advantage to world medalists
  12. There have been a handful of posters on this forum that have ardently defended him through thick and thin and believed in his talents. Good job sticking by your guy... I loved him in college but did not see the results to have faith in him at this level. Hopefully I will revive this again after gold is b Tokyo
  13. I do agree with that Smith is still the best US wrestler ever, but Smith lost to John Fisher domestically. It is really close. Also JB wrestled during the best of three period rules which promoted upsets by its design
  14. I think Smith is number one US wrestler, but it is close. Smith also lost to Sarkissian at least once. And not only was Beloglazov up a weight, he was also retired
  15. Paging Jordan Oliver, Daniel Cornier on line one
  16. I wasn't either but now he is our rep I am all about Kid Dynamite bringing home the gold. JB is my favorite wrestler ever and it hurts to see his run end
  17. They should be interviewing Dake and giving JB some time
  18. He is saving the double flip for Tokyo
  19. Just one... I can't get the stream to work and have given up. Good news is that I have an extra 104 channels on my Direct TV
  20. Finally was able to upgrade now have NBCSN. Watching wrestling!
  21. Yeah just tried to upgrade and they are not able to process it
  22. Still not working for me. I think you might need a premium package. I just stopped my sports package after NCAA finals
