The fact that Dake is having this level of difficulty is a bad leading indicator for what will come if he gets to Rio. Even though I feel he and Taylor are more polished than the rest of the field. I think it would be better for someone more size/frame appropriate to win this thing.

It is...but that was a huge win.  In Perry's last performance, he beat the world bronze medalist and a guy who clobbered Dake in back to back matches.  Perry would have been a legit medal contender.  I still think Dake's undersized and I'll feel more hopeful of our medal chances if Taylor or Cox step up to beat him, but the Perry win was the real deal.

Fair point, but it's not like Perry is a fish. He did very well recently against legit international comp.

Was not aware of Perry's accolades. Thanks for that. And we are in agreement on the size issue!
