  1. No one can obviously take away from Brandon of the fact that he soundly beat Bouvaisa Saitiev just to advance from the Pool. That tournament (2000 Olympics) was a huge year in Americans beating the best at their weight class from Russia (Rulon over Kareline, Lowney over Kogouashavili, Slay over B.Saitiev). In my opinion, I felt Slay's win over Saitiev was more stunning that Rulon over Kareline. Because Slay as I mentioned soundly beat Saitiev and proved it was no fluke. Rulon's situation was a penalty point, didn't soundly beat Kareline. But because Kareline was unbeaten while Saitiev wasn't, most may view Rulon's victory being bigger. Although Brandon may have been one and done after the Sydney Games, nobody can't take away what he accomplished. That match with Leipold (GER) was only a show as Leipold played an acting game too much to win cheap. But also dependent on Roids to get him there.
  2. At 125kg, nothing to do with the Uzbek that got stripped of the Bronze as the Iranian was on the opposite side of bracket. However on the Iranians side of bracket, the Syrian that placed 5th (Making it to the Bronze Match) was DQ from his 5th place honors (assuming also doping). With him getting DQ, the Iranian moved into the top 6. Qualifying the weight class for the Olympics and gaining 3 more points for the team. As Iran had 93, USA 94. The 3 extra points got them to 96 Points and getting ahead of USA.
  3. Just found out today that Khadjiev (FRA) and Rakhimov (UZB) who have officially won Bronze Medals at 2019 World Championships have been stripped. At 125kg, Deng Zhiwei of China becomes the New Bronze Medalist who also won a Silver in 2018. At 74kg, Daniyar Kaisanov of Kazakhstan becomes the new Bronze Medalist. As Kazakhstan already finished 2nd in the team race, it made the points better. Then USA fell from 3rd to 4th, Iran moved from 4th to 3rd.

Is that our time or in Kazakhstan time? I live in Illinois, I was wondering?
  5. Understanding, this being the year before the Olympics. It is as you mentioned to qualify the weight class for their country in placing in the top 5 the previous World Championships. I would of thought Aslanbek Alborov would have represented Azerbaijan at 97kg. But guess Azerbaijan will put Sharifov to go at it.
  6. One part that got me was showing that Sharif Sharifov (Azerbaijan) is listed as representing 97kg, not 92kg. I wonder if it was an error or if Sharifov is going to wrestle 97kg? Yes as with 79kg, it's a joke compared to 74kg. Only Dake and Hassanov are the 2 quality wrestlers there. The rest is a matter of the draw as to who can be the 2 Bronze Medalists.
  7. I will appreciate if someone can post the results. Not every detail, but who won and will represent USA in September. Thanks!
  8. Others having problems with live stream this morning on Track Wrestling. Mine has been down last 10 minutes.
  9. As I am under the track wrestling site to purchase the live stream. It does not seem to be getting to where I need to in purchasing it. Anybody know what I need to do? I'd appreciate all the help possible. Thanks.
  10. I can't find the brackets. I'd appreciate if someone can guide me where to find it? Thanks.
  11. I live in Illinois which is central time zone. I do see that Budapest is 7 hours ahead of my time. Does anybody know comparing the difference between my time and Budapest in what time the World Championships will start? I saw in a schedule for Eastern Time it starts Saturday October 20 at 4:30 AM.
  12. Thanks bud, appreciated your help.
  13. Yes, but only question I have now is this. It only shows 57kg. I was attempting to click on the other weights. As I tried, it does not get to it. Is there something different I have to tap? Appreciate your help.
  14. I know going through all the weight previews, they did mention the ranks. But as I am trying to go back and find what they posted prior (weight previews from the start till now, I can't find). Is their a way I can find it? If anyone knows, I'd appreciate it if you can let me know. Thanks.
  15. I agree with most everything you mentioned. Even though this doesn't happen too often. Not sure if you remember past wrestlers. Brandon Slay (USA) who lacked international competition prior to the Olympics. Then went in the Olympics and defeated the best Freestyle wrestler ever from Russia. Seldomly it happens. But there is always hope as they say. Yes best Hadi can really do is Bronze. It would take the miracle for him to do more, but just for Bronze he must be in the game fully and not give up as you say. If Karimi is 92kg, I have high hopes for him. Maybe to even have Ebrahimi at 97kg is the best Iran can do at the moment at that weight. I wonder if Abbas Tahan will ever return?
  16. Alright I got you now. But still with 92kg and 97kg I feel the team will be best using Javad Ebrahimi 92kg and Alireza Karimi 97kg. Golej I don't believe will do much. Karimi has potential. I like Hadi at 125kg. So this will be first experiences for Yakheshi, Nasiri, Emami. There are surprise results in some wrestlers first years competing. I hope those 3 can make a mark. Thanks for the info.
  17. Wrestlefan, I suppose there is no more hope for Reza Yazdani. Injuries have been too extreme for him sadly. Before I say who I was hoping to be Iran's Freestyle Line-up. What happened to Hassan Rahimi, Behnam Ehsanpoor, Masoud Esmailpour, and Ahmad Mohammadi? I don't know what happened to those 4. Without them I hoped to have this line-up. 57kg Atri, 61kg Yakheshi, 65kg Mehran Nassiri, 70kg Meisam Nassiri, 74kg Hosseinkhani, 79kg Akbari, 86kg H.Yazdani, 92kg Ebrahimi, 97kg Karimi, 125kg Hadi. It's not too much different than yours. I say Karimi is the best bet for 97kg as he did a great job at the Asian Games. I have confidence that Javad Ebrahimi would do a great job at 92kg. But I guess we will see who knows when (what the official team is going to be).
  18. Thanks for all the info, appreciate it. With that said. I have to agree the Heavyweight will be the weakest. I feel terrible for Makhov the way you explained the thing about him. I say it would be best for Baitsev to move up and represent 125kg. That would be the best Russian representative at the moment. I hope for Geduev to recover and for Tsabolov to be the entry at 74kg. Thanks once again for all the information.
  19. Just out of curiosity, are the National Champs the ones that get the spot on the World Team? The only one I can think of is Tsabolov being the best bet at 74kg for Russia. Would he have a chance to go despite losing in the Nationals? Also are Tsargush and Geduev officially retired? If so, I'd say that those two plus Abdusalam Gadisov retired early. I had hoped Gadisov would come back and go Heavyweight. Since I don't know if Makhov will come back. Thanks for all the information.
  20. Real quick Jaroslav. In the finals, can you please mention who are the finalists at 57, 65, 74, 86, 97? Thanks
  21. Will the Valencia-Dake match be televised?
