Huge "first world problem" pet peeve - why the heck does track make you click the "play" button every time you switch mats?  If you are switching mats just start playing it, 98% of the time you are going to another mat to immediately watch the stream.

Updates from Saturday morning:

 

Walz wins 2-1 in the repechage over the bigger Kurbanov with all points being passivities. He's got Jake Varner nemesis Andriitsev of Ukraine in the bronze match.

 

McKenna forfeits his repechage match.

 

Megaludis (1-0) and Colon (2-0) will face each other in the semi's at roughly 10am eastern time. Colon comes back from down 6-0 versus Lachinau of host Belarus (4 or 5-time world teamer for them). He hit a 4-point throw at the edge with under 2 left, then got a takedown into multiple guts with a minute left and won 14-6. Lachinau looked strong and was not gassing, so this was a nice win for Colon.

 

Dieringer rolled twice and will have Sherpak of Ukraine in the semi's. 

 

Zillmer gets taken down three times and earns two passivity points for an unimpressive 6-2 loss to Mahamedau of Belarus (who is in his first tournament since placing top 10 at the Olympics). Mahamedau, you'll recall, crushed Dake at this tournament in 2016 during Kyle's foray up to 86. Mahamedau will have Sharifov of Azerbaijan in the semi's and Zillmer would wrestle Sharifov directly for bronze in this low numbers weight class should Mahamedau win.

 

In ladies' action, Becka Leathers loses soundly to Altantsetseg of Mongolia in the R16 while Kelsey Campbell wins easily over Yarmola of Belarus in the quarters--both at 57kg. Campbell and Altantsetseg will wrestle in the semi's, so a win by Campbell puts her in the gold-medal match and a loss brings Leathers back into a winnable repechage against India.

 

Summary of action yet to come today:

 

Semi's at 10am eastern time:

Megaludis vs. Colon 

Dieringer vs. Sherpak of Ukraine

Campbell vs. Altantsetseg of Mongolia

 

Finals at 11am eastern time:

IMar vs. Dibirgadzhiev of Russia for bronze

Walz vs. Andriitsev of Ukraine for bronze

Victoria Anthony vs. Tsogt-Ochir of Mongolia for bronze

Haley Augello vs. Simonyan of Russia for bronze

^slight correction

 

Victoria Anthony made the finals. Last night they told the athletes weigh ins were at 9-9:15, and then this morning they changed it to 8:30-8:45. Victoria wasn’t told so she missed weigh ins and they refused to let her weigh in

 

She is forced to default out of the finals.

 

So annoying. She was on a serious run this tournament and looks to have maybe jumped levels.

That's criminal. So frustrating.
