So it is likely than only 5/10 Russian freestylers will come into worlds with a medal? Some not from 2017? I suspect Tsabolov at 70. That could be the difference in the team points. With Burroughs and Chamizo there, it might not matter all that much.

 

US chances just went up. I don’t see Russia meddling at 57 or 125. All might wrestle for medals though, which adds up team points wise. There are a few other maybes. This team looks weaker than last year on the surface.

Hope USA can repeat!!

- @57, Uguev medals this time around.

 

- @61, Rashidov medals.

 

- @65, Now this is unexpected. It was to be Ramonov I think, but now, not clear who goes. Chakaev is good though, has been around for years.

 

- @70, Magomed G, former world champ, medals.

 

- @74, new talent Sidakov is really really good. Didn't he beat Chamizo? Likely to medal at worlds.

 

- @79, Ahmed Gadzi. , likely gold.

 

- @86, Kurugliev is really good. Euro champ 2018, has been around for a while, 26, prime time of career. He is primed to cause an upset but may also lose early.

 

- @92, Tsakulov...new talent. Can score, will he get selected? Not much international experience.

 

- @97, Gold for Sadulaev.

 

- @125, weakest class, bronze at best, likely no medal.

 

IMO, one of Tsakulov, Kurugliev or Sidakov win gold if they participate. The Russians always have some surprise winners.

 

It will a fun team race between USA and Russia. USA wants to prove last year was not a fluke post-Olympic year, while Russia wants to get back to no.1.

i got Russia as the pretty clear favorite.

 

57 Uguev - medal threat

61 Rashidov - gold threat if not favorite

65 Bekbulatov - gold threat

70 Gazimagomedov - gold favorite

74 Sidakov/Tsabolov - gold threat

79 Gadzhimagomedov - gold favorite

86 Kurugliev (or Naifonov/Valiev) - gold threat

92 Tsakulov - relatively unproven but still a gold threat 

97 Sadulaev - gold threat if not favorite

125 Khizriev - medal threat

 

the only weight i would worry about for Russia is 125. Uguev is young and 57 is very unpredictable so I wouldnt be shocked at a gold there. Russia is just too deep and has so few weaknesses. they can afford an upset or two in Budapest. 

 

America has a great team and can still repeat but I think they are vulnerable.

 

57 Gilman - medal threat but has taken worse losses than Uguev recently

61 Garrett - unproven internationally

65 Stieber - medal threat but has taken some questionable losses

70 Green - ditto

74 Burroughs - still the gold favorite in my eyes but its no sure thing

79 Dake - gold medal threat but got beat pretty handily by Gadzhi at Yarygin

86 Taylor - gold medal threat, maybe favorite? really hope we see a Yazdani rematch

92 Cox - medal threat (maybe gold) but same as Stieber and Green

97 Snyder - same as Burroughs

125 Gwiz - medal threat, will depend on the draw. hopefully he avoids Taha and Geno. 

 

Azerbaijan is also going to be problems

 

57 Edisherashvili - gold medal threat if not favorite

61 Hasanzade/Gvarzatilov - medal threat, Gvarz smashed Bonne at world cup

65 Haji Aliev - gold medal threat

70 Muslimov/Azimov - medal threat, Azimov beat Green at world cup

74 Omarov/Azimov - slim medal threat with Hasanov up at 79

79 Hasanov - medal threat

86 Gostiev - medal threat

92 Sharifov - medal threat

97 Albarov - gold medal threat? would have to go through either Snyder, Sadulaev or both but not impossible

125 Magomedov - medal threat

 

i would not be very shocked if the USA won another championship but i would consider it another upset. i think second place would be a tremendous achievement.

IMO, Kurugliev will beat Yazdani if they meet. That dude is really good, beat many world contenders over the years and is not any worse than Geduev IMO who would have beaten Yazdani had it not been for the eye at the Olympics.

 

That said, Taylor IMO is the favorite for Gold at 86kg. He is wrestling out of this world.

Spot on!!! Good picks I see Russia as favorite. Remember last year they won with no gold medals and were 1 point away

 

I see possible 2-3 golds

Yazadi will destroy Kurugliev with his pace, his muscles can’t take the pace.

Just out of curiosity, are the National Champs the ones that get the spot on the World Team? The only one I can think of is Tsabolov being the best bet at 74kg for Russia. Would he have a chance to go despite losing in the Nationals? Also are Tsargush and Geduev officially retired? If so, I'd say that those two plus Abdusalam Gadisov retired early. I had hoped Gadisov would come back and go Heavyweight. Since I don't know if Makhov will come back. Thanks for all the information.

- Tsargush has retired, he is a coach now, responsible for the 74kg weight class I believe.

 

- Gadisov has also retired, couple of years ago. In Gadisov interviews, he always says about himself he was an 'average athlete' and never followed a strict sports regimen. 

 

- Geduev is not retired, not sure where he is, he was injured.

 

- Makhov has way too many injuries and its unclear he will ever wrestle again, he has very serious health issues, has lost a lot of weight, etc. He is not well.

 

- The Russian World Team is not yet determined. There may be quite some changes, its not that the winners go. It will be for sure after Poland in September, and even after that, said Tedeev. Probably it will be known only by the end of September, at the earliest. I suspect at least 3 of the Russian Nationals champions will not be selected to go to the world championships.
