Bey is teched by 2017 Senior World Champion; ouch! I ended up not being able to watch past the introductions. Was the meet relatively close?

junior and senior world champ are two different level.

I agree that junior and senior world champs are on different levels, but I expected a closer match from Bey. Anyway, it was not a close meet with only two wins for Mango and Stefanowicz; latter winning by getting the last and equalizing point on passivity call 10 seconds before the end, which is not usually done.

Of course, but it also depends on the athlete. You have an increasing number of guys who have gone from Junior World success to Senior World success in one year or less.

 

More than that, I am amazed by Nemes's ascendance on the world scene. Here are his last five World and Olympic finishes:

 

2017 - champion at 75 kilos

2016 - 8

2015 - 21

2014 - 30

2013 - 28 (also finished fifth one month prior in juniors)

 

This kid is on fire!
