  1. I see some folk asking/wondering if certain folk will appear or not. This is a link to the list from uww https://uww.org/article/30-tokyo-olympic-medalists-highlight-wrestleoslo-world-entries For ease this is Iran and Russia's full fs list: Russia 57: Nachyn MONGUSH 61: Abasgadzhi MAGOMEDOV 65: Zagir SHAKHIEV 70: Israil KASUMOV 74: Razambek ZHAMALOV 79: Akhmed USMANOV 86: Artur NAIFONOV 92: Magomed Guseynovitch KURBANOV 97: Abdulrashid SADULAEV 125: Sergei KOZYREV Iran 57: Alireza Sarlak 61: Rahman Amouzad 65: Amir Mohammad Yazdani 70: Erfan Elahi 74: Younes Emami 79: Mohammad Nokhodi 86: Hassan Yazdani 92: Kamran Ghasempour 97: Mojtaba Goleij 125: Amir Hossein Zare
  2. I agree with your top 4, but not necessarily in that order. I would be surprised if anyone outside those 4 wins Gold, (medal most definitely, but difficult to see winning gold). I actually reckon JB is the most likely of them all. Taylor and Cox have one main rival respectively that could certainly pip them to the post as you mentioned, but have good chances. And Dake with his main rivals not going should on paper have an easier path. Chamizo is not going either btw. On a slight aside how do yous reckon Taylor vs Yaz 4 goes now that Taylor has won 3 in a row? All in very different circumstances and different matches, but 3-0 nonetheless.
  3. Karimi has a win over Ghasempour in the league a few years back, but don't think that will tell you anything about his chances vs Cox, I rate him to have a very good chance. Definitely helps that Chamizo, Sidakov and the guy he got teched to won't be at the comp at 74kg, he has a much more straightforward path. I reckon it is probably the strongest team on paper of all countries. Russia is sending it's B team apart from at 97 and 86, and Iran has a mix of youth and some set guys like Yazdani. Definitely think most appreciate that. In my personal opinion there are at least around 4 weights that Iran should challenge USA quite strongly. That is including of course Yaz vs Taylor 4.
  4. Russia 57: Nachyn MONGUSH 61: Abasgadzhi MAGOMEDOV 65: Zagir SHAKHIEV 70: Israil KASUMOV 74: Razambek ZHAMALOV 79: Akhmed USMANOV 86: Artur NAIFONOV 92: Magomed Guseynovitch KURBANOV 97: Abdulrashid SADULAEV 125: Sergei KOZYREV Iran 57: Alireza Sarlak 61: Rahman Amouzad 65: Amir Mohammad Yazdani 70: Erfan Elahi 74: Younes Emami 79: Mohammad Nokhodi 86: Hassan Yazdani 92: Kamran Ghasempour 97: Mojtaba Goleij 125: Amir Hossein Zare
  5. 57: Alireza Sarlak 61: Rahman Amouzad 65: Amir Mohammad Yazdani 70: Erfan Elahi 74: Younes Emami 79: Mohammad Nokhodi 86: Hassan Yazdani 92: Kamran Ghasempour 97: Mojtaba Goleij 125: Amir Hossein Zare I made a thread on this recently, check it out, Jon Kozak also chimed in and it was useful. http://board.themat.com/index.php?/topic/27830-list-of-worldolympic-medalists-attending-and-not-attending-oslo-world-championships/
  6. https://uww.org/article/30-tokyo-olympic-medalists-highlight-wrestleoslo-world-entries Whole preliminary list. Interesting, Sad seems to be there.
  7. FS: 57kg: DNP 61kg: Gold 65kg: DNP 70kg: DNP 74kg: DNP/bronze depending on draw 79kg: DNP, if good draw perhaps a bronze 86kg: Gold 92kg: Gold 97kg: Bronze 125kg: Gold if Geno isn't there. Silver if he is.
  8. Taylor is seed 1 and Yaz seed 2, so I believe they won't meet before the final, you feel Yaz may not even get to the final?
  9. With this world championship being quite unique being less than 2 months after the olympics there is a bit of disparity between which top guys from countries are coming or not. Just wanted to make a list of some olympic and world medalists we know are going to attend or not. And what big names we still are unsure of. Please feel free to add if I have missed anyone out. Confirmed Attending: Kyle Snyder David Taylor Hassan Yazdani Kyle Dake Amir Zare Thomas Gilman Confirmed not attending: Bajrang (has injured himself and India are holding trials, he claims if he is fit prior to worlds he would like to attend and request a retrial) Ravi Kumar Otoguro Gable Stevenson Unlikely to attend: Russian olympic medalists from Tokyo Akgul Chamizo Attending if successful in qualifying: Jordan Burroughs Cox Not sure of anyone else off the top of my head. I have heard Russia won't send the Tokyo guys, but this is pure hearsay and not confirmed by any means. Still will be a solid tournament I reckon, with some solid matches. Taylor vs Yaz 4 in particular. Also looking forward to a potential clash of Cox vs Iran's 92kg Ghasempour. (If Cox qualifies of course). Anyone know anything more official on the Russians?
  10. What makes you think Kamran won't go?
  11. Two matches that I look forward to the most Yazdani vs Taylor 4 Ghasempour vs Cox I reckon no matter who goes in the other 3 weights i would expect 61kg and 86kg and above to place. 5 medals would be least expectation. Depends who else shows from the other countries to see how well everyone does.
