  1. I don't know if they train together but they have wrestled before (e.g. national trials etc)
  2. no one mentioning Ghasempour at 86kg who beat Naifonov (RUS) for gold? Yazdani and Taylor beat Kurugliev and now Ghasempour beat Naifonov, Russia not very strong at 86kg it seems

    Summary of U23 FS: 57kg: Sarlak went 0-2, lost to the gold medalist Hasegawa (JPN) 1-2 then lost to Mueller (USA) 15-16 in the repechage in a crazy match 61kg: former Junior champ Sadeghi went 3-2, ultimately lost to Liu (CHN) 3-3 on criteria in the Bronze medal match after a very dodgy challenge won by Liu in the last 3 seconds... 65kg: Ghiasi went 3-2, lost 4-4 on criteria against gold medalist Higuchi (JPN), then lost 6-0 to Duduev (RUS) in the Bronze medal match 70kg: Amiri went bust 0-1 74kg: Zanganeh went 2-1 and won Bronze 79kg: Asghari went bust 0-1 86kg: Ghasempour went 4-0 and won Gold, beating Naifonov (RUS) 4-1 in the final (Naifonov won European Gold but then lost to Kurugliev in the Russian trials who was chosen above Naifonov for world's, after Kurugliev lost to Taylor and Yazdani many Russians were saying Naifonov should have gone instead, but looks like Kurugliev deserved it), Ghasempour looks like a real talent 92kg: Shahbazi went 3-1 and won Bronze, lost to Sotiev (RUS) 10-10 on criteria after a challenge in the last 2 seconds... Then beat Mtsituri (GEO) 4-2 in the Bronze medal match 97kg: Shabani went 3-1 and won Bronze, lost to gold medalist Givi (GEO) 10-0 but beat Yang (CHN) 11-0 in the Bronze medal match 125kg: Taheri went 3-1 and won Bronze, lost to gold medalist Gamidov (RUS) 2-3 but beat Kamil (POL) 8-0 in the Bronze medal match Overall: 5 medals (1 gold and 4 bronze), 2 losses in the Bronze medal match and some unlucky losses too, a good showing in the FS overall (at the U23 GR Iran won 4 medals, all bronze).

    Summary of day 1 FS: Sarlak in the repechage against Mueller (USA) at 57kg Ghiasi is in the bronze medal match at 65kg (Ghiasi lost 4-4 on criteria against last year's senior world champion from Japan in the SF) Shabani is in the bronze medal match at 97kg (Shabani got teched 10-0 in the SF) 70kg and 79kg are over
  5. Hasegawa looks so damn skinny/small
  6. I guess, still not a big fan of a world champ moving back down to u23 though

    U23 FS going well so far, only out of a medal at 70kg Ghiasi looks good but has Higuchi in the semis which is a bit unfair given Higuchi won silver at Rio 2016 Shabani looks good at 97kg and is in the semis too
  8. Higuchi is a olympic silver medalist from 2016 and still competing in the u23s?
  9. Ghiasi beat McCrystal 10-0, what a beast

    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.
