FS Junior Worlds - Team Race

Recommended Posts

Missed all the bracket matches during the day yesterday, but got home for the medal matches. I was watching the 55 bronze match, and it's Russia vs Iran, and I was like, who beat these guys?

 

Then I saw Amiraslanov (AZE) dominate the 55 gold match. He looked like "a little Sadulaev" out there. This guy was fantastic.

Mammadov (AZE), the 66 kg winner and the guy who beat Pico is apparently 25 years old and has a Silver medal in 2011 at Russian Junior Nationals

I did a little research (google) and it looks like Mammadov has been accused of this before by the Russians at the Youth Olympiad.  If this is true what a shame for Pico because the guy from Japan who made the finals is the same guy Pico beat for his cadet world championship.

Major BS if that's true.

 

The thing is, even if he's really that old...he BARELY beat Pico and Fujinami, who are both legit Jr age

if that's true about Mammadov, Russia may not want to rock the boat given all the rumors about Sadulaev. 

 

I don't think there are a lot of Yakuts in Azerbaijan, but Yakuts and Azerbaijani are both apparently a dialect of Turkish, so maybe it's hard to tell. i dunno. 

 

its too bad since it doesn't matter what age they are once you get to the senior level but if your country/federation cares about cadet and junior medals i can see the incentive.
