A few questions on the upcoming Yarygin tournament:

 

1. Who is on Team USA's roster? Pretty sure I heard Kyle Snyder is going again. Who else?

 

2. Will we see the new 10 weight classes here?

 

3. What will Russia do with the brackets this year?

 

   a) Last year they put all the Russian athletes on the opposite side of Snyder's bracket. Wonder why? Kyle still ended up pinning his Russian opponent in the finals. 

 

   b) Will Russia (and all countries) honor an international courtesy where they separate teammates from the same country into different brackets? (C'mon, guarantee the athletes an international tournament. Don't have Stieber and Futrell travel halfway around the world and then wrestle each other in the first round. Defeats the whole purpose of traveling and competing in an international tourney.)

 

At the same time I'd have no problem if Team Russia wants to separate whatever Russian wrestlers from each other in the brackets being that they'll have a ton of Russian entries here.

David Taylor hinted in December that he is going via Twitter.  Not sure about others.

After the Ohio State Rutgers dual this morning on the Big Ten Network, Kyle was interviewed and he confirmed that he is in fact going to the Yarygin.

Kyle is simply a new level I have never seen. The guy is GOAT unless major injury. With Sad back down is there anyone in the world anywhere that can keep the match under a tech fall at 213? Yarigin is going to be cake walk for him unless a roided up Bolt shows. I really think the guy could beat Akgul or Geno?

Snyder is amazing, but Akgul and Petriashvili are huge.  He'd be giving up ~40 pounds or so to each... not to mention 5 or 6 inches in height.

I know but he is 15 points better than the #2 guy in the USA Gadsen and at least 10 everywhere else. Serious question is there anyone out there that could survive not being teched by Snyder at 213? Sad but he is going back down. That is why I thought about a match up with Geno or Akgul or Mahkov. Could he pull that off? He wrestles the big guys already in college.

Didn't the Yarygin used to have a Grand Champion where the 97kg champ wrestled the HWT champ?

I don't remember them having this? Would be pretty cool to see him vs Mahkov.

I think Russia knows that under most circumstances Sad will lose. But I have not heard if the new weights will be implemented at Yarigan or not?

Yep, they're using the updated weight classes.  Via UWW: 57, 61, 65, 70, 74, 79, 86, 92, 97, 125kg for MFS;  50, 53, 55, 57, 59, 62, 65, 68, 72, 76kg for WFS.

from what I've read, Sad is wrestling at 97kg not 92kg. I have the feeling one of them will lose before they meet.

PRyan - didn’t Snyder lose twice in the last 18 months or so? He is clearly not untouchable.

Paul, here's one year (2010) they had the Ivan Yarygin Absolute Cup where the 96kg champ Belonovskaya (RUS) beat 125kg champ Shemarov (BEL).

Maybe they did away with the Absolute Cup to prevent injuries? That's trying to move around a much bigger body.

Kyle said he would leave after the Iowa dual and head off to Russia, I am sure he knows what he's doing, but I am a little worried that he won't have much time to get acclimated.
