Micic at the Euro

Recommended Posts

He has chosen to represent Serbia at the Senior Freestyle level, which he is eligible to do though his fathers being from the country. Although this means he won’t be representing the US anytime soon, it is a great way for him to jump start his Senior level international career. Good luck to him.

Good for him, but not good for the kids he beat at the Cadet and Junior level to make the USA world teams.  The resources and experiences could have gone to develop a senior level USA wrestler.

We have many expats on various US teams - look no further than our Olympic lineup of distance runners. Perhaps we should not be so hypocritical, though at first blush it is easy to relate with you.

Micic beat El Ouarraqe 8-4 this morning, steamrolling through the first period but gassing badly by the third minute and ending up hanging on for dear life in the last couple minutes. Not sure if 57kg is doable for him in the long-term with same-day, back-to-back weigh-ins. He'll be first on the mat in the bronze match when finals start at 11am US Eastern time. His Spanish opponent owns some nice wins in the past, including a couple over El Ouarraqe, so he's no slouch.

Micic looks SKINNY down at 57. Who was cornering him for the tournament? 

 

I wish he would have stayed at NU, but happy for everything he's accomplishing at UM.

 

As to other recent Americans who wrestled for other countries, don't forget that Alex Dolly (UNI) wrestled for Ireland and Larry Langowski (Northwestern) wrestled for Mexico. Didn't one of the Cornell guys wrestle at PanAms for another nation?

I want to say Dylan Palacio did

Khinchegashvili looked like he had nothing against the Russian. Couldn't defend Russia's shots, and couldn't score his own. Is 65kg too much for him?

I don't know, might be deceiving from watching the matches on the stream, but looks like Khinchegashvili is big and solid at 65kg now. Bekbulatov is a beast even though he gassed and lost in the finals to Aliev.

 

Khinchegashvili and Aliev both went from 61kg to 57kg back to 61kg and now both up at 65kg. Then Aliev wins the Euros at 65kg today.
