2017 MFS World Team Trials

Recommended Posts

Nice win for Nolf over Pami. Nolf gets Kulchittsky now for a spot on the travel team?

 

Thanks BTF and pamela on the scheduling. 

I don't get how this is all organized. We have some true second place bouts like at 74kg IMart vs Ringer is listed as true second. In FloArena there is actually a third choice for every weight class except forr 70kg for which there is no second place option. Anyone know if it's a mistake?

The idea that one or two tough matches is an enormous disadvantage doesn't make sense to me. Dake had exactly six minutes of tough, Taylor same. These are well conditioned athletes who wrestle many more matches than that and do just fine.

 

It may or may not be an enormous disadvantage but it is a disadvantage. And unless these guys have won a World medal, then why should they getthe benefit of sitting out. They've not proven themselves internationally and the u.s. is littered with guys who win domestically and couldn't sniff a medal overseas. Vak had it right. Best two out of three the next day and you get to sit out only if you are World medalist the previous year

That is only true second in the challenge bracket, which is 3rd overall and that gets him on the National team and funding. Same for all the true 2nd challenge bracket matches. Nolf gets on the team due to beating Kulchittsky. It is a pretty big deal getting to train with all the senior level guys.
