  1. I agree, DPRK had produced surprises in the past specially in 57kg, actually 1-2 cycles leading into Rio Olympics, DPRK guy (forgot his name, Kong ??) was leading the pack and defeated Kinche 1-2 times! I don’t remember any notable wins in 57 kg by DPRK lately, but S.LEE in 65kg gave tough matches to Bajrang in Asia level competitions
  2. Regarding 86kg RUS Rep - Artur Naifnov made it to finals in Poland Open where as Dauren Kurugliev lost his semi-final match to POL in last 2 seconds (step out). So, its Naifnov to Nur-Sultan
  3. The opponent did not show up , damnnnnnn!!!!! Yianni into finals
  4. Yianni's match is 2nd queue now in Mat-1, so we should expect it after 15 mins
  5. The distinction in this case (86kg) is definitely debatable, but i guess if you look into 97kg, Reza Yadnai being underdog makes perfect sense. I am sure you know this - but typically Underdog is someone who is not expected to win (either because of new entrant, not-so-good results in the recent, re-entries after long break etc.) but wins. Considering Karimi did defeat sharifov last year world's, Karimi has to be a challenger. I am not sure what i was thinking when i wrote this for 86kg. So that would probably leave Dato (GEO) as Underdog.
  6. Hi All, I know we have 6 more weeks to go for 2019 World Championships, but why not share our thoughts on contenders, challengers and underdogs.

  7. i came across an article on wrestdag.ru which indicated Soslan Ramanov ( Rio Olympics Gold - 65kg) contesting in elections (not sure what type of election). Here is the link to article http://www.wrestdag.ru/news/ru/v_mire/olimpijskij_chempion_usilit_partiju_na_mestnih_viborah/ you can use google translate on Chrome to read it in english It was also mentioned that "Recently, Soslan Ramonov has been traumatized, for this reason he was forced to miss the recent national championship in Sochi." Not sure what's "traumatized" really meant (google translator picked up this word), but i am guessing he had some physical injury due to which he could not participate in russian nationals. But looks like he is going to up for Tokyo olympics, not sure 65kg or 74kg?? Here is the google translation of the article ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This was announced in social networks by the head of the North Ossetian branch of Patriots of Russia, a member of the Federation Council of the Russian Federation, the first vice-president of the Federation of wrestling of Russia Arsen Fadzaev. "We, the" patriots ", the composition is serious. Among the candidates are representatives of culture, education, sportsmen. There are Olympic champions. True, we have one fighter - Exiled Ramonov. In other games there are Olympic champions too. I think that they will bring only benefit, ”said Fadzaeva. Elections to the City Assembly of Vladikavkaz will be held in September. 32 deputies will be elected to the legislative body of the capital of North Ossetia with a term of office of five years. Recently, Soslan Ramonov has been traumatized, for this reason he was forced to miss the recent national championship in Sochi. According to his coach, Anatoly Margiev, the titled wrestler intends to fight for a place in the Olympic team. -----------------------------------------------------------------------
  8. Its confirmed Ghasemi is getting GOLD ..https://unitedworldwrestling.org/article/ioc-determines-taymazov-fails-london-re-test CORSIER-SUR-VEVEY, Switzerland (July 26) – The IOC Disciplinary Commission (DC) rendered its decision against Artur TAYMAZOV (UZB) who failed a reanalysis of his anti-doping test at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Taymazov tested positive for the prohibited substance dehydrochlormethyltestosterone (oral turinabol). The Uzbek wrestler had earned a gold medal in freestyle wrestling at 120kg and his removal will re-shuffle the order of medalists at the 2012 London Games. Komeil GHASEMI (IRI) will become the new gold medalist, Bilyal MAKHOV (RUS) remains silver, and Tervel DLAGNEV (USA) will be the newest bronze medalist. Gold: Komeil GHASEMI (IRI) Silver: Bilyal MAKHOV (RUS) Bronze: Tervel DLAGNEV (USA) Bronze: Daulet SHABANBAY (KAZ) Taymazov may opt to appeal the IOC DC decision before CAS within 21 days. United World Wrestling will then determine the sanctions faced by the athlete.
  9. Just now read an article on UWW site..https://unitedworldwrestling.org/article/ioc-determines-taymazov-fails-london-re-test CORSIER-SUR-VEVEY, Switzerland (July 26) – The IOC Disciplinary Commission (DC) rendered its decision against Artur TAYMAZOV (UZB) who failed a reanalysis of his anti-doping test at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

  10. Very nice post and pics. Thanks for sharing I am from India and you are absolutely spot on "Wrestling Kushti is treated like a religion", "India is still very much separated by the class system. Kushti is one of the few things that makes them all equal whether you are rich or poor"
  11. Yianni defeated Zain 9-5. Yianni hit a nice 4 pointer in the last minute!
  12. Quick update on Finals 65kg - Rashidov beat Kuular (5-2) 74kg - Magomed Kurbanaliev beat Tasbolov (5-4). This was an intense match, Kurbanaliev pulling it off in last seconds. So, its going be the winner of Kurbanaliev and Sidakov will go into world championships. If somehow Kurbanliev prevails aginst Sidakov, then JB's chances for gold are higher ( JB figured out Chamizo and ofcourse "nobody has beaten Burroughs twice" ). If its Sidakov for World Championships, I am picking Sidakov over JB ( disproving "nobody has beaten Burroughs twice")
  13. If anyone is interested, here are the finalists from Russian Nationals day-1 57 kgRamiz Gamzatov (Dagestan) - Michael Ivanov (Moscow Iakutiia) - 6: 4 Muslim Sadulayev (Chechnya) - Hasanhuseyn Badrudin (Dagestan) - 3: 3 (+ :-) 65 kg Nachyn Kuular (Krasnoyarsk-Tyva) - Islam Dudayev (Chechnya) - 4: 3 Gadzhimurad Rashidov (Dagestan) - Bekkhan Goygereev (Dagestan) - 6: 0 Note: Ilyas Bekbulatov lost early on 7-7 criteria. 74 kg Magomed Kurbanaliev (Dagestan) - Magomedrasul Gazimagomedov (Dagestan) - 2: 2 Khetik Tsabolov (Alania) - Timur Bizhoev (KBR) - 6: 4 86 kg Vladislav Valiev (Alania) - Alexander Kondratov (Krasnoyarsk kr.) - 6: 0 Artur Naifonov (Alania) - Exiled Ktsoev (Alania) - 4: 0 97 kg Vladislav Baitsaev (Alania) - Georgiy Gogaev (Alania) - 2: 1 Igor Ovsyannikov (Krasnoyarsk kr.) - Shamil Musayev (Dagestan) - 4: 3
  14. Thanks for the links @Abdullahgadzhi Khuzin
  15. I know Russian national wrestling championship is starting today, but I could not find any link to watch livestream and/or results. Anybody has any info on this. This board is missing @Abdullahgadzhi Khuzin. He used to provide livestream links for Russian nationals and also a wiki page on them.
  16. Here are the final results - 57kg - Amirslanov def Micic 9-1 65kg Haji Aliyev def Kinche 10-2 74kg Sidakov fall over Soner Demirtas 86kg Dauren Kurugliev def Ali Shabanau 3-2 97kg Sadulaev over Nurmagomed Gazhiyev (Injury Default) 125kg - Anzhor Khizriev def Gini Matchrashvli 8-2
  17. 57kg: Fix, best case: Bronze, Worst Case: DNP 61kg: Colon, best case: Bronze, Worst Case: DNP 65kg: Yianni, best case: Bronze, Worst Case: DNP. Bajrang/Otoguro/Rashidov or Ramonov have edge over Yianni. Since Yianni is not seeded in UWW yet, its very likely he will run into one of them prior to Semis, if he can get through he will win Bronze, if not DNP. 70kg: Green, best case: Bronze, Worst Case: DNP 74kg: JB, best case: Bronze, Worst Case: DNP. As we know, Sidakov and Chamizo are threats. I have a feeling Chamizo is going to come back strong. Based on the UWW seedings so far, both Sidakov and JB will be on opposite sides, but i think Chamizo would fall into JB's side and I am taking Chamizo over JB, thus Bronze. 79kg: Dake, Gold 86kg: DT, best case: Gold, Worst Case: Bronze. It entirely depends on how serious DT's injury is, but I am hoping he will be fine by Worlds. I also have feeling that he might ask for later wrestle-off for Final X with PD III 97kg: Snyder, best case: Silver, Worst Case: DNP. We are going to see Snyderlaev III. I am taking Sadulaev over Snyder. In fact, I am also very interested to see how Aliksandar Hushtyn (BLR) is going to play againts Snyder. Hushtyn gave a tough match to Sadulaev in this years European Championships finals. Here is the video: 125kg: Gwiz, best case: Bronze, Worst Case: DNP
  18. My gut says Dake will be at 74kg for Olympics, he wants an Olympic medal on his medal list.
  19. Another nice article (after BTS match) on Bajrang and Indian wrestling system in general - https://www.newsclick.in/bajrang-punias-millennial-dilemma-indias-olympic-favourite-show-chinks-defensive-armour
  20. Bajrang’s personal coach is: Shako Bentinidis from Georgia. However Bajrang was trained by Yogeshwar Dutt (2012 Olympic bronze in 55kg) since his childhood and Bajrang consider him as mentor and Guru. one nice article on Bentinidis and Bajrang here - https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.firstpost.com/sports/wrestling-world-championships-bajrang-punias-coach-shako-bentinidis-says-he-needs-to-work-on-power-lower-body-technique-5458101.html/amp
  21. I strongly think Yianni would make world team this year and is a solid medal contender for this year world championships. Apart from above, following are few opponents which i think will be interesting to see against Yianni 1. Bajrang - this is happening part of BTS on 6th May. Although Bajrang is a beast, i think Yianni has a chance to beat him. I can't wait to see this match 2. Otoguro (JPN) - we might see this match in this years worlds 3. Magomedmurad Gadhziev (POL) - although he is competing at 70kg lately, i think he will come down (as he did for 2016 Oly) for this years worlds and 2020 oly
  22. Yes, BTS match with Bajrang is now very more interesting. As I mentioned in other thread, thought Bajrang would easily win, but oh boy! after watching Yiannis US open matches, I think it will be a very very close match, Yianni might even pull the upset. Yianni’s scrambles are out of the world, I am even liking Yianni’s scrambles better than KD and DT’s.
