World championships 2016! Brucket and resutls!

Recommended Posts

the last 2 rewarded to Chakaev is a part of freestyle I think is stupid. He just lifts his leg and gets two. It's not even good counter defense just a bailout flop

 

Logan looked like the better wrestler.

 

The inside trip by Chakaev was the only nice move by him when my feed came up

 

Chakaev looked much taller and that might of bothered logan some

 

It only looks like a cheap flip if your brain is locked into folkstyle.  If your only objective is exposure and your brain is locked that way, it was an unreal series of counter attempts that led to 2.  Your analysis is exactly why we lag behind in freestyle when we've got the best potential wrestlers in the world.  We don't even realize how blind we are with our folkstyle brains that can't recalibrate to the freestyle mindset.

Hildebrandt drops a heartbreaker to Hungary to fall out of medal contention.  Gonzalez up next on Mat A in the greco R16.  I don't understand at all why they didn't utilize the 3 mats equally instead of putting greco, with it's slower matches, all on one mat while the 2 freestyle brackets have to race through with limited rest.  Again, it just feels like the UWW can't get out of it's own way sometimes.

Wow, the Georgian Lomtadze with a huge 12-11 come-from-behind win over Gvarzatilov of Azerbaijan in the other semi.  It will not be a low-scoring final between Stieber and him.  His shot defense and counter exposures are very, very strong.

Lomtadze has been around, but this is clearly his best result.  He took silver at the watered down Euro's last year, but did get a win over Shuptar before falling to Bogomoev.  He lost to Batbold and Bajrang last year at worlds and to Bogomoev the year before in finishing 7th and 11th.  Bajrang got hammered in the quarters by Gvarzatilov, so you'd have to look at Lomtadze's win as a significant upset.

Awesome. Thank you! Do we know what mat it will be on?

All finals are on B...I would assume they'll go women's bronze, bronze, gold, then men's freestyle bronze, bronze, gold before finishing with the host country Hungary's preferred style of Greco.  That would mean Logan would be up 6th at probably a little after 1pm US ET/ 19:00 CET

Interestingly, Stieber's medal today is just our 3rd world/olympic medal in the bottom 3 weight classes (55/57, 60/61, 65/66) in the past TEN years.  That's right, we're 3 for 30 at those weights the last 10 tournaments.  Cejudo famously wins gold in 2008, Coleman Scott picks up a bronze in 2012, and then we're 0 for 11 until today.  We're strong in the mid to upper weights because our athleticism works to our advantage with our folkstyle lower-half attacks.  But in the lower weights where everyone is just as athletic and proficient at leg attacks AND knows how to score above the waist and off of counter exposures, we're generally toast.

So theoretically we could have Logan, Green, Burroughs, Cox, and Snyder all at worlds next year. If everyone is at their best, that is a hell of a team. Also will have room for two up and comers. Maybe Gwiz? Not sure who at 57. Maybe Ramos or Nashon. Also Molinaro, if he can get back to Olympic form.
