Junior World Freestyle Aug 1 -2

Recommended Posts

Watching Valencia the past 3 years at junior worlds, he is a very good wrestler but a step behind the best and loses the big matches. Was the third best guy in the weight the past two years (despite not winning a medal) and definitely the second best today.

Zahid did not look good there. Gassed and made a dumb move charging at him trying for the push out. That said, the caution and 2 was questionable at best. 

 

 

My thoughts exactly. The caution and 2 was suspect, he got tired, when he gets tired he takes a bad shot, and then to get into an upper body tie with that guy. Questionable tactics all probably from being tired.

Looks like Deakin lost 0-10 ... from Track. Any color on how? Thanks!

No shame. That Russian guy is very good. Deakin way outperformed expectations and will be a force in college. Super happy for him, Seemingly came out of nowhere. 

 

I don't think Yianni would've beaten that guy either, and I am super high on Yianni. That was a full grown man who is ready to compete on the senior level.

He won without that on criteria. He had to fight from behind immediately. Totally screwed up the match, because it forced him to press the action. one of the takedowns he gave up was due to this (on the edge when he was forced to go for the push out from an unfavorable position)

Agree. Fix hasn't even been scored on in this tourney and that guy doesn't have the goods to beat Fix. Fix's trap arm gut wrench is insane right now. One, two TD's can win this. 

Cannot wait for Fix to wrestle Lee and Suriano in college. All 3 had a shot at being 4 timers, but I dont' think any of them win more than two because of the others. Crazy deep. 

 

With the new international weight classes, hopefully both Lee and Fix have room to be on the team. Would be a shame for them to have to compete for 1 spot, although they will push each other at least.

Agreed. But outside of his feet to back, what did Z do? He took a lot of sloppy shots and tried to go upper body with a guy who was clearly stronger than he was.

Fair enough. The caution and 2 forced him to take some bad shots, but he started getting too sloppy late. He seemed pretty gassed, but so did the Russian. 

 

Honestly, that Russian is solid. that shrug he used early on was super slick.

NO PRESSURE 17 year old Stevenson, who shouldn't even be wrestling in Juniors! If you win, the US wins for the first time since 1984. If you lose, we don't.

 

This is crazy!!! Proud of our team. Really want to win...

That is if the Russian HWT wins his Bronze match. He should but it still has to happen. Russia drops the match the US secures the win.

That shot that Z took near the edge was from left field. Poor shot.
