    ufo got a reaction from CA_Wrestler in Women's Team Score   
    Mukaida has been a bit flakey (by J-women's 1st team standards) - bottled it in 2017, blew it at the 2020 asians, and was beaten by the PRK girl at the 2019 asians & worlds (the latter a 12-1 tech fall). I see Fujinami taking that spot in a year or two, then Japan have Susaki, Fujinami, and Ozaki to rule & 50, 53, and 62 for the next couple of cycles (plus a Kawai or two, if they stick around). The growing depth of women's wrestling will see them get squeezed out of the 2 heaviest weight categories completely though IMO.

    ufo got a reaction from GoNotQuietly in Russia is banned by WADA for 4 years   
    I'm somewhat pro-Russian in general but they deserved this ban, it would make a complete joke out of all anti-doping efforts if they were allowed to continue with only a slap on the wrist after this and their 'it's all a big unfair conspiracy against us' domestic spin is unbecoming.

    ufo got a reaction from CA_Wrestler in Japan playoff matches   
    Susaki/Irie is an interesting selection dilemma:
    You have Susaki who is undefeated internationally, 2x world champ (aged 18 and 19) and crushed the field last time out, looks all set to be the star & 'face' of the team for your home Olympics. If I was coach I'd be completely confident of Susaki winning gold in 2020.
    ...but then there is Irie who must be a bad/awkward match for Susaki as they trade wins in domestic tournaments with Irie coming out on top slightly more often. However Irie has fallen short several times at the global level and has no world titles yet. If I was coach I would not be completely confident of Irie winning gold in 2020.
    But, she just won the selection battle again & your own rules say if she even gets a Bronze at worlds this year then she goes to Tokyo... what a headache. ;)
