    Wow. Makoyed wrestling pretty well.
    Convincing 10-2 over Kuenz of AUT.
    Pulls out an 8-7 last second win over Epp Mae of EST (who looked terrible).
    Her last opponent in the RR is Raedelt of GER who's lost her first two matches badly.

    Yelena should make the finals!

    The best almost always wrestle at Russian Nationals. Sidakov wrestled (and lost) at Russian nationals after winning 2 straight world titles. Sadulaev has won 5 Russian nationals titles and was only allowed to skip twice.
    I'm not sure if we'll see Uguev or Rashidov this year because they haven't wrestled since the Olympics. However, I expect to see the rest of Russia's top wrestlers compete this weekend.

    I'll just speak on the WFS team since not many people are talking about it besides a few people. But let's start off with Japan since they're the direct competition for the team title and a lot of things that have happened are going to directly affect who they actually send.
    At last December's Emperor's Cup(One of Japan's national/world team tournaments) in Japan, none of the women's Olympic medalists participated.  However, ALL of the Oslo team competed.  The winners of that tournament were given the bid to compete in the Asian Games.  The Asian Games starts the exact same day in China as this year's Senior World Championships in Serbia.  So, the Japan Wrestling Federation told the winners of the Emperor's Cup that they had to decide to compete at one or the other.  The winners could turn down the spot for the Asian Games and attend the World Championships *if* they also win the Meiji Cup, which is taking place in less than 2 weeks.  That's Japan's other national tournament.  If there are two different winners for each tournament, there is a playoff between the two winners for the World Team spot.
    So...
    -50kg World champion, Remina Yoshimoto(21) already chose to compete in the Asian Games and somebody named Yui Susaki(22) will most likely win the world team spot with the Meiji Cup coming up in less than 2 weeks.  Yoshimoto was slated to compete at this tournament as well even though she said she's not planning on entering or trying to defend her title from last year.  As far as a recap goes of the Emperor's Cup finals last December, Remina barely beat Susaki's college teammate, Umi Ito, 3-2.  The final will probably come down to Susaki vs Umi Ito, Miho Igarashi or Yoshimoto(if she competes)  Yoshimoto also won this year's Asian championships at 50kg.  I'm still picking Susaki to win the Meiji Cup and the World Championships in Serbia.
    USA- HIldebrandt medals.
    -53kg World Champion and 18 year old phenom Akari Fujinami has chosen to compete in the Asian Games but she can always turn down the spot to try to compete at the World Championships.  As you can remember, she teched her way to her 2021 World title 41-0 as a 17 year old.  She also teched her way to a senior Asian title in mid-April, outscoring everybody 41-0.  Her dad moved close to her school and has been one of her coaches at NSSU along with Kaori Icho.  She's scheduled to compete at the Meiji Cup to to solely do ONE thing.....to compete against 53kg Olympic champion, Mayu Mukaida, who will be returning to the mat to compete after getting married last year.  Fujinami has been dying to face Mukaida in an official match because she's going for that 2024 Paris Olympics spot and she did extremely well against Mukaida in national team practices leading up to the Olympics.  If Fujinami makes it to the World Championships, I think there's a very good chance she wins her second senior title.  If Mukaida makes it, she might come back with her 3rd world title.   USA- Parrish medals   -55kg World Champion Tsugumi Sakurai(20) to the surprise of nobody bumped up to 57kg at last December's Emperor's Cup, defeating 2021 Oslo Bronze medalist, Sae Nanjo(22).  Sakurai wants that spot for 2024 at 57kg in the Paris Olympics and is looking to defeat 57kg Olympic champion, Risako Kawai.  Sakurai also won this year's Asian championships at 57kg.  This means that most likely we'll see Haruna Okuno back up at 55kg or others like Nanami Irie, Igarashi, etc.  In the Emperor's Cup semis last year at 53kg, Okuno lost a very close match to Nanami Irie by 1 point.
    USA- Winchester medals or DNP
    Speaking of Risako.....
    -57kg Olympic champion Risako Kawai(28) just had her first child less than a month ago and there's no way she's competing in the Meiji Cup and I highly doubt she's going to be competing in this year's World Championships.  Tsugumi Sakurai will be competing at the Asian Games unless she enters and wins the Meiji Cup, so this spot is Sae Nanjo's to lose for this year.  Risako will of course try to get her spot back for the 2024 Paris Olympics when the time comes.  Nanjo and Kawai train at the same university.  If Sakurai competes and wins the Meiji Cup to compete in the world championships, I'm pretty sure anybody predicting another tournament win for Helen should be very nervous.
    USA- Maroulis 1st or second
     
    -59kg Sara Natami won the Emperor's Cup and also the Asian championships earlier this year.  I'm not sure if she's wrestling at the Meiji Cup or has already chosen to wrestle at the Asian games,  If she goes to the Asian Games, we'll see some women bump up to 59kg from 57kg.  Akie Hanai(Oslo silver) could also show up here.  Natami also trains with the Kawai sisters, Sae Nanjo, Akie Hanai and others.
    USA- Nette undecided/DNP
     
    -62kg Olympic Champion Yukako Kawai(24) is scheduled to return to the mat after almost a year off.  This is going to get interesting because the 2021 Oslo bronze medalist, Nonoka Ozaki(19) is also scheduled to compete even though she's supposed to compete at the Asian Games(she can also decline if she wins the Meiji Cup).  I thought that if Ozaki had gotten past Tynybekova in last year's WC, Ozaki would have easily won the title.  As a reminder, Ozaki lost to Tynybekova from a takedown right before the buzzer in their first round match.  So fast forward to 2022.  Ozaki won this year's Asian championships because....she beat Tynybekova in the finals, 9-1.  I think Tynybekova faked an injury at the end to prevent getting teched, but Ozaki took it to Tynybekova and didn't falter to a vet move this time around.  Ozaki also won last December's Emperor's Cup and this year's Asian championships.  Either way, Kawai or Ozaki are heavy favorites to win it in Serbia along with Tynybekova.
    USA-TBD
     
    -65kg Silver medalist Miwa Morikawa(23) won last December's Emperor's Cup and will be competing at the Asian Games unless she competes and wins the Meiji Cup.  She also won this year's Asian championships.  This weight will probably be won by Anya Gempei, who Morikawa beat in the Emperor's Cup by tech fall.  Gempei is a former Jr WC(2016), U23 WC(2017) and bronze at the 2018 Senior World Championships.  Very likely that Japan has another finalist here.
    USA-  Velte medals
     
    68kg- 2021 Silver medalist Rin MIyaji(22) did not compete at last December's Emperor's Cup due to that bad knee injury from the finals match.  I'm not sure if she'll compete at the Meiji Cup.  Naruha Matsuyuki won the Emperor's Cup last December by criteria over a very, very good up and coming Ami Ishii.  Ishii had defeated the 2021 72kg World Champion, Masako Furuichi in the semifinals, who had dropped down the Olympic weight of 68kg.  Matsuyuki will be competing at the Asian Games and this weight will come down to Ishii and Furuichi at the Meiji Cup.  If Furuichi gets through, probably medals.
    USA- TMS gold
     
    72kg- 2021 World champion Masako Furuichi dropped down to the Olympic weight of 68kg.  That means that this weight is wide open in Japan.   Sumire Nikura won last year's Emperor's Cup.  She was second at the 2022 Asian championships.  Not sure what to expect here.
    USA- Elor undecided/DNP
     
    76kg- Yuka Kagami won last year's Emperor's Cup by beating Nodoka Yamamoto and will be competing at the Asian Games.  This weight is also wide open.  Nodoka Yamamoto won this year's Asian championships at 76kg.  This could be a DNP or medal.  You never can tell with this weight.
    USA- Grey wins by having twins.  Ok, actually, Guilford undecided.

    Head doesn't have to hit for it to be a step-out. If the hand is out and upper body is out, then a step-out can be awarded. Just watched a UWW ref explain this on a training video. I believe it was the correct call.

    Jon_Kozak got a reaction from Mphillips in Zahid will take out Taylor   
    What made you think Taylor didn't look himself at worlds? His previous 3 wins against Yazdani were all razor thin - in Oslo Taylor failed to finish on a single leg that ultimately proved to be the difference. Again, razor thin match.
    Also, Zahid just lost in January to Russia's Amanula Rasulov, 5-2 at the Yarygin. While Zahid is in a tier of his own in the United States, nothing suggests he's reached the Yazdani, Taylor, Naifonov, and Kurugliev tier.
    I don't think Taylor will tech Zahid but do think he'll win 2 straight in a fairly controlling fashion...maybe like 6-2 or 7-3 type matches.

    Not 100% but he didn't compete at Emperor's Cup in December and he's not in the entry list for the Meiji Cup. Those two tournaments are what Japan uses to pick their team and I haven't read or heard they're making an exception for him.

    Kaiki Yamaguchi is the main contender. He won the Emperor's Cup at 65kg in December. If he wins the Meiji Cup (June 16-19) he will win the spot.
    If he doesn't win the Emperor's Cup, he'll have a wrestle-off with the winner.
    He's obviously a big drop-off from Otoguro. Lost 9-0 at Asians to Amouzad...also lost to Tumur-Ochir at worlds last year (3-2).
