    other countries have terrible funding too but still have done better lately, how much funding you need to wrestle on a mat and do training exercises or go run in the moutains?

    You were right, by a miracle he won bronze, his opponent Aleksanyan (multiple world champion) retired with an injury so he automatically won the bronze.

    First time since 2003 that Iran didn't win any medals in GR at a full world's? We haven't been good since Sourian and Norouzi retired

    Who is Poshtam (at 77kg GR)? He won national trials or what?

    I didn't know there was an Iran section, all this time I was posting with the Americans Salaam everyone Geraei looks good, but has a tough QF draw, same with Nouri. Abdevali will have a tough bronze match presumably against Manukyan

    Congrats to Adam Batirov and Bahrain

    Adam deserves all the credit in the world for his individual achievement. Bahrain deserves no credit at all.

    Who do you have next time? Let's bet on it.

    It is genetics partly for sure but there is always ways to improve conditioning. He gained 16kg (Sad only gained 11kg) at the age of 22/23, that's a huge disadvantage and he's still destroying everyone else, I think he just needs more time. Sad didn't have a hard match at 97kg until he met Snyder but he still hadn't adapted by that time either. Agree on Sad/Snyder, it makes me think of Salimi and Lasha (weightlifting), Salimi could win so many golds if Lasha wasn't around.

    He can improve his conditioning and pace himself better. Don't forget he was at 70kg a few years ago, takes time to adapt to a weight class 16kg higher. A bit like Sadaluev moving up 11kg, but more and at a lower weight. Sad is 22, Yaz is 23, Taylor is 27. I'm not comparing Yaz to Sad though, Sad is clearly pound for pound #1 by far, Yaz not top 5 yet.

    Congrats to Bahrain on buying a Russian wrestler to win them their first ever medal. They must be very proud of this incredible milestone for Bahrain.
  12. Yazdani Taylor and Kurugliev all being in the same bracket was unforgivable (Kurugliev should have taken Naifonov's seeding given he beat him). Ditto for Geno Akgul and Hadi at 125kg, that was probably the worst given Deng lost to Hadi 7-0 literally 2 months ago but got a ridiculously easy draw to the final and got a silver despite very clearly not being the second best at the weight. At least they didn't **** up 97kg though.

    Sadulaev 100%. I'll go with Yaz to beat Taylor next time too.

    Sadulaev by pin little over a minute

    Sadulaev goes up to Snyder's weight and crushes him, incredible he was already P4P #1 but now it's without a doubt.
