I just recently watched the Terry documentary from Flo again. Terry was the defending world champ and lost to the future Olympic champ in Kendall Cross in 96. Has there been any other year or weight like this where the Gold Medal match was essentially wrestled at the trials?

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. Contrary to what you've just seen, war is neither glamorous nor fun. There are no winners, only losers. There are no good wars, with the following exceptions: The American Revolution, World War II, and the Star Wars Trilogy. If you'd like to learn more about war, there's lots of books in your local library, many of them with cool, gory pictures.

Les Gutches beat defending world champion (and defending Olympic Champion) Kevin Jackson in 1996 winning in Nationals and 2 for 2 in Olympic trials.  He did not medal that year but did win worlds the following year.

The opinions and views expressed in my posts, are intended to promote Russian international styles wrestling and international wrestling in general. Please excuse misspellings, misunderstandings, or misinterpretations. I am doing my very best to communicate in English, but it is a work in progress. I speak several languages, but I am still learning context, culture, and local tradition. I love USA and I am doing my best to be a great ambassador. Thank you for understanding.

Yes only happened one other time when a defending Olympic champ wrestled the defending World champ in the finals of the OTT. Lewis vs Smith the other. Both series went three matches. Varner had to wrestle Snyder the same day as mini. Lewis got a days rest.

Shultz - Sheets

What makes you think this?  Schultz was 6th at the Olympics this year and Sheets never went before or after to the worlds or Olympics.

Gibson vs. Blatnik.  Epic bout.  Longest overtime I ever saw.
