Wow amazing how short the list is! A lot of guys could not win here. Like Olympic champ's Cael 3rd in 2003 and 2nd in 2004 and Varner 3rd in 2012 and 2nd 2016.

David Taylor is the only man on that list who isn't yet a world medalist, right? And more than half are gold medalists.  Hard to imagine he doesn't get a couple before it's all said and done; he looked great in tough matches.

He had a great tournament but it has been watered down quite a bit. No Georgia, Iran, or Azerbaijan unfortunately.

Well when you look at the above list of who has won the Yarygin, you see that they are some of the best this nation has produced. With DT joining that list, I think that this upcoming year, will be the year that we see David Taylor punch his ticket with a World Title or Medal, and not just due to winning this tournament, (which I do kind of see as a benchmark), but how he has been wrestling going all the way back to last year's World Cup, and more recently at the Club Championships.

Yeah, and he barely beat Helfin 11/9 at the WTTs and the lost to Cox while acting like an entitled baby.

Mocco never medaled.

cjc007, you do make some valid points regarding last year's Team Trials with DT. However, I think the way DT has wrestled against his international competition has me thinking that he may breakthrough this year. But this international season has just started, and there is a long way to go, so a lot could still happen.

Regarding Heflin, I was surprised at how tough he wrestled DT, but now we have seen him at the Club Championships, and at the Yarygin, and I think Heflin is aquitting himself pretty well. So I guess my point is that Heflin is probably a lot tougher and better that most people thought.
