  1. Would be a stronger argument if those prior world champions weren't also the reps in 2019, thus would be first in priority to be the PAOQ rep if they hadn't medaled last year. Procedures were only published recently, but are dated November 27, 2019. They would have known in November that criteria #1 wouldn't have any bearing on 74/97 but would on 86. Couldn't find any published criteria for the 2016 PAOQ but it was all 2015 world team members except for Tervel since Rey wrestled at 2015 Worlds. Of course Tervel had won 2015 WTT and got injured before Worlds so not exactly apples to apples. I'll take the best chance at qualifying the weight over being entirely fair.
  2. Haven't seen this posted yet, put USA Wrestling put the MFS selection procedures for the Pan Am OG Qualifier on their website. Seems to give Taylor first priority at 86kg, then Downey, then Cox. Listed in rank order: 1. Previous World Champion from 2017 or 2018 competing at the same Olympic weight class in which they won their World Championship. 2. 2019 World Team Member at the same Olympic weight class in which they competed at during the 2019 World Championships. 3. World medalist from 2017, 2018 or 2019 at any weight class.* 4. 2019 World Team Member from a non-Olympic weight class.* 5. If the team can NOT be filled following ranked items 1-4, selections will be recommended by the Men’s Freestyle National Team coaching staff to the Men’s Freestyle Sport Committee for final approval.* a. The selections will be made based off results during Fall 2019 & Winter 2020 competitions. b. Competitive readiness will also be taken into consideration. *If there are multiple people coming into the Olympic weight that meet the stated criteria; wrestle-offs will be scheduled accordingly prior to the event. Selection Procedures were also posted for MFS for the Pan Am Championships which are basically the same.
  3. It was announced they were seeding the qualifying tournaments in September. I pulled the seeding points earned from the ranking pages here.
  4. Since they are seeding the top 2 at the Pan Am Qualifier here are those that earned seeding points at Worlds without qualifying the weight. Points can also be earned at the 1st ranking event (Matteo Pellicone) and the Pan Am Championships. MFS 57kg - Tigreros Urbano COL - 14 86kg - Downey USA - 14 WFS 53kg - Valverde Melendres ECU - 18; Montero Herrera CUB - 16; Hildebrandt USA - 14 57kg - Rodrigues Penalber de Oliveira BRA - 16 62kg - Miracle USA - 16 GR 87kg - Gregorich Hechavarria CUB - 18 97kg - Rosillo Kindelan CUB - 14
  5. There is a much bigger benefit if you qualify the weight in WFS and greco as whoever qualifies the weight gets a bye to the finals of the OTT. Thus the established and published selection criteria.
  6. That was J'den's first loss at 92 kg. His last loss was to Boke at 2018 Yasar Dogu. Would have to find the interview, but this match was one of the reasons he made the move to the OTC. By his own admission he gassed in part because he was still helping at Mizzou at the time and wasn't able to devote all his time to his training.
  7. For anyone that still cares, they finally put the arbitration award online. You can find it here. Went up less than 24 hours after my prodding email, which has me kicking myself for not emailing sooner.
  8. NJDan once again you are referencing rankings that you don't understand what they are saying or how they work. Your response from the other thread is apt in this situation as well.
  9. Did Flo take down its articles about the refereeing assignments for the 2016 Olympics? Only dead links now (though there is a cached version of one of the articles). They had some good info in them although also some potentially libelous allegations made toward Silvestri. The same guy who apparently just made Yianni's case for him at the arbitration.
  10. I doubt we get transcripts. It's no guarantee that the hearing was even recorded for a transcript to be made. A party likely would have to request it be recorded beforehand. Outside of the final award I'm not sure we'll get to see anything else. Maybe the arbitration demand/answer or briefs, but one reason people choose the arbitration process is precisely because it all is not public. All others arbitration decisions are posted here. Hopefully it will be posted sooner rather than later. May show up elsewhere first.
  11. Iran will score at least 12 combined between 61 kg and 86 kg and more likely 14 or 16. They actually max out at 138, while the USA is only at 125. USA could win at 125 kg and still get passed if things went right for Iran. I wouldn't say Iran is favored to reach the bronze match at 74 kg or 92 kg though. Iran should score points at 74 kg whether they make the bronze match or not. I think I'd rather be in the USA's position, but by no means are they almost locked into second.
  12. We won't score any non medal points from day one. Yahya was the only one to win a match and his 4 CP won't be enough to place in the top 10. Also for team race, Russia should be 7th at 97 kg so that is another 8 points for them.
  13. This indicates they are brothers. I have no idea if that is correct, although the source is very knowledgeable about various Russian wrestlers.
  14. I can't view this on YouTube, but maybe you can. I personally wouldn't call it a "shake," but a slap or touch. It's similar to the Dabir/Brands video you posted both times.
