    freestyle_fan got a reaction from irani in Best wrestlers who did not win an olympic gold medal   
    Few wrestlers come to my mind are -
    1. Abdusalam Gadisov (RUS) 97kg  - multiple world champion and but never won Olympic Gold. He lost to Reza Yazdani in 2012 and 2016 I think RUS sent Anzor Boltukaev as thier rep for 97kg.
    2. Murad Gaidarov (orignally RUS represented BLR) 74/76kg - multiple european champions and  1 or 2 time world champ, but always (often controversial) left behind by his nemesis great Buvaisar Saitiev. He did win Sliver (originally bronze, later upgraded to Silver) in  2008 Olympics but never a gold.
    3. On women's side - many were denied Olympic Gold by Japan, few i could think who missed Gold are : Maria Stadnik (AZE) , Sofia Mattson (SWE)

    I think its going to be interesting...I am sure Gazi is going to explore all his options to get a wrestle-off with Sidakov. I think, he might win against Sidakov. My gut says Russia will send Sidakov anyway ( considering he beat both JB and Chamizo twice already), but its going to really interesting to see the whole drama with wrestle-off...lets see how it goes

    freestyle_fan got a reaction from 2td3nf in European Championship - Feb 10-16   
    Chamizo won gold by defeating Gazimagomedov in finals 5-3. It was a tough match, Gazi almost had the win if he could convert that step-out in the last seconds. Chamizo being Chamizo defended it well.
    later Chamizo made interesting comments (excerpt from UWW)
    After the award ceremony, Chamizo stated he believes that Gazimagomedov is a lot better than the man that beat him in last year’s world finals, Zaurbek Sidakov. “(Sidakov) is a cool guy, and he’s training good, but I think (Gazimagomedov) is much better than him,” Chamizo said. “Look, (Sidakov and I) wrestled in 2018, and my training was about 50%. I didn’t perform. It was the same thing in 2019. My knee and ankle weren’t good. Right now, I’m good. But, where is (Sidakov)?”
    UWW article also talked about Gazi should get a chance via wrestle-off with Sidakov for Tokyo seat
    As it sits now, Sidakov is the top choice to represent Russia at the Olympic Games. But, Gazimagomedov’s Yariguin win and European silver-medal finish further his case that he deserves at least a wrestle-off to show just how worthy of a competitor he is.

    freestyle_fan got a reaction from 2td3nf in European Championship - Feb 10-16   
    Men's Freestyle starting tomorrow (Friday Italy time, Thursday night US time), brackets released in UWW site
    Interesting Matches:
    74kg
    Frank Chamizo vs Soner Demirtas (TUR) - first round match
    M. Gazimagomedov (RUS) vs Atantil Kentchadze (GEO) - probable 2nd round
    Finals - I think it will be M. Gazimagomedov (RUS) vs either Chamizo or Demirtas.
    97kg
    bottom half fully loaded with Sadulaev, Gadzhieyv (AZE), Odikadze (GEO), Khramiankou (BLR), where as top half with no major names.
    Sadulaev will probably sweep through!
    65kg
    Kinche vs Ismail Musukaev (Russian import in HUN) - probable semi final match
    Finals - Shirave (RUS) vs Ismail Musukaev (HUN) or Kinche (GEO)
  12. Thanks
    freestyle_fan got a reaction from Tofurky in Soslan Ramanov - into politics ??   
    He recently (not so recent but in Dec’19) competed and won GOLD in 65Kg in “Alan’s International Tournament” in Russia. 
    He is definitely in the mix for 65kg to represent Russia in Tokyo. In my opinion he is the favorite as well with Rashidov being the main challenger.

    I agree with you, i think Mohammadian handles Sharifov but just thinking how he fares against Sadulaev. I am not sure (?) if they both get to meet prior to Olympics. I need to check what all international tournments we have from now until Olympics. I had good feeling about Mohammadian when he tech falled Baitsaev (RUS) during military games, but had doubts about his consistency in performance. This performance today clears everything, he is a real deal!

    freestyle_fan got a reaction from irani in India   
    I agree. I think I did talk about few factors in one of the thread earlier on the reasons for India’s improvement in wrestling lately.
    key factors - Increased funding from Govt and Private partners with an aim to improve medal count in Olympics, adoption of mat wrestling (freestyle) into local clubs at early age (apart from traditional mud wrestling), foreign coaches and training programs with Russia (few selected players like Bajrang and Sushil Kumar), Japan (women’s team spent some trading in Japan). Both men’s and women’s FS is improving very well, but Greco has long way to go
