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.
