    Yes-I had the wrong year...just changed it. It''ll be interesting to see how he does at Seniors considering he and Vito had such a close match.

    So far I missed 1 returning medalist - Friev from Spain at 86.

    It's the guy who won 61 I believe. The close match you are referring to was the 57 final. This guy basically ran through junior worlds. 

  2. More people being involved in wrestling would definitely result in more good wrestlers as obviously most people who get involved in a sport just don't have the genetics/talent to compete at the elite level. So in that sense it would definitely help if wrestling was as big in every province in Iran as it is in Mazandaran. But I don't think that that is the main problem. Russia's team is mostly Dagestanis and Ossetians. Russia would also be a lot stronger if wrestling was popular all across the country .Dagestan has a similar (slightly lower) population than Mazandaran. There's 700,000 people in Ossetia. They have wrestlers from other areas but those two regions are always the bulk of their team. Similar to how we have had guys like Lashgari (Qazvin) or Hadi (East Azerbaijan). I'd say our main problem is lack of finances and poor coaches. 


    Look at what a change of coaching and financial backing did for Bajrang. He went from a guy losing to Nasiri to consistent medalist at various tournaments in probably the hardest weight class at the moment.

  4.  I'd send Zare. Mohebi is a waste of time, he's been around for a few years now and is not improving at all. Mohebi's losses are also spectacular, i've never seen a HW who gets thrown as much as him. I doubt Zare's style will ever transition to the senior level in terms of being a top top HW , but I could see him stealing a couple bronzes or so over his career just by being tough and getting push outs, obviously assuming he is able to consistently make our world team over the next years. This is HW after all, that style can work with the right draw. No chance for 2019 at his age, though.
