Velte will draw fellow U.S. star Kayla Miracle (Campbellsville, Ky./Sunkist Kids) in her first bout. This is a rematch of 2018 Final X, won by Velte two matches to one.

Mensah-Stock starts off with Agnieszka Wieszczek-Kordus of Poland, a 2008 Olympic bronze medalist.

Reading that JB will hit Chamizo in round 2, but cannot find the full brackets.  See that JO has an Argentinian in rnd 1.

If anyone has link to full brackets, would appreciate a link.

 

Thanks.

Green looked the same he's looked for the past year.  He's tough and strong but his offense is stagnant.  Everything he's trying to do is so vanilla, and he's lost a half step it seems post-injury, so it's not quite as effective.  He lost to a guy that's not very high on the Russian ladder in a tight match.  

Molinaro looked fine, it's not a bad loss to Bekbulatov and we should get to see more of him this tournament.  

Thx.

They somehow just gave Sanayev two more points. Now they are saying match is over even though nothing else has happened. No idea what is going on.
Unbelievable

Macc loses 3-2 to Kurbanov and had a single in the air for last 25 seconds but could not finish. Thought he should have forced it to the edge and gone for continuation but don't know how that would play out internationally when we haven't been getting any favors.

Strong 5-1 win for Dieringer over the U23 champ, moves on to the finals. That match was a brawl.  
Been watching so much college recently you forget what a fight each international match is.  
I like the "continued action" of freestyle. Center of the mat wrestling is exciting.

I was thinking the same thing... how did he score in the first? Was watching ringer, would a step out not giving him criteria?

I would like to see Snyder change his lifting regimen slightly, and refocus a bit more on flexibility and "general" strength.  I.e. more parkour type strength and agility, and less deadlift/power lifting type of strength.  

"general strength"? What does that mean?  I'f say that squats, deadlifts, and presses all build a lot of whole body strength.  Flexibility? Any idea how much he stretches? Parkour? lol 

Very cool to watch, but not sure how it improves wrestling.  Not sure I want a 225 lb guy doing that stuff.  Parkour type strength?  What even is that?

I think he means he'd like Snyder develop more agility and flexibility. He's obviously very powerful, but he's a bit stiff and straight on. If you're strong enough to hold position with him, you can beat him. Obviously, there are very few that are. Fwiw, I disagree with treep. A tiger doesn't change his stripes this late in the game. Snyder isn't going to turn into an explosive, slick wrestler. He's going to be the bull he always has been. It would be like trying to get Marinelli to start incorporating ok state style elbow pull ducks and level changes. That's not what he does.

I honestly knew what he meant.  It was just ludicrous.  As if parkour is the secret to being a great wrestler.  Maybe Snyder does agility drills and yoga but doesn't post on insta?

Parkour in and of itself won't make you a great wrestler, but a lot of great wrestlers are using elements of parkour in their training. I wouldn't just dismiss that stuff out of hand. You don't need to see them doing backflips from hay rolls (Bo Nickal) although that would certainly be one place to find them. That Bo Nickal hay bale flip they showed on Flo even mentioned he wanted to work on his box jumps which are a great addition to a squat and dead lift routine. Box jumps and many types of vaults create explosive power just as lifting does. They also require balance and flexibility. 

Conor McGregor uses elements of parkour and something called movement complexity he learned from Ido Portal. That lizard walk he does is one of those movements, and this requires a lot of strength and a lot of balance and flexibility. 

Snyder's former team mate johni dijulius does a lot of free movement type stuff involving jump climbing and different other movements. I wouldn't recommend Snyder go right into all the stuff johni does because some of his stuff is crazy.

Look at the way Kyle Dake does his cartwheels, or David Taylor does his high box jump movement when coming to the match. All of these things require/give you a nice combination of strength, balance and flexibility. Kyle obviously already has the strength, and I think treep is saying it could help him to add in some different things to the routine. Does he already do these type of things? I don't know. What I do know is that while he is obviously crazy strong, he doesn't "appear" to have the same kind of elite flexibility that guys like Dake, Taylor and Nickal, among many great wrestlers possess.

RUSE, Bulgaria – Alex Dieringer (Stillwater, Okla./TMWC/Cowboy RTC) has qualified for the gold-medal finals at 79 kg/174 lbs. at the Dan Kolov International, the second UWW Ranking Tournament for men’s and women’s wrestling.

Dieringer scored a solid 6-0 victory over 2018 U23 World champion Nika Kentchadze of Georgia in the semifinals. Dieringer will compete for the gold medal on Friday night against Omarakhab Nazhmudinov of Romania, who was third in the 2019 U23 World Championships.

In the first session, Dieringer scored a pair of technical falls, stopping Muhammet Nuri Kotanoglu of Turkey, 11-0 and Zaur Efendiev of Serbia, 10-0.

Dieringer, a three-time NCAA champion for Oklahoma State, is currently No. 3 on the Freestyle National Team.

The U.S. had three other wrestlers in the semifinals, each who dropped competitive bouts. All three will compete in bronze-medal matches on Friday. 

2018 World bronze medalist Joe Colon (Fresno, Calif./TMWC/Valley RTC) was defeated in the semifinals by 2018 World silver medalist Nurislam Sanayev of Kazakhstan, 13-2. The match included a number of different scrambles, in which the calls went in favor of Sanayev. 

At 92 kg/202.5 lbs., Michael Macchiavello (Raleigh, N.C./Wolfpack RTC) was edged in the semifinals by 2019 Ivan Yarygin Grand Prix gold medalist Magomed Kurbanov of Russia, 3-2. Macchiavello had a high single leg he could not finish in the closing seconds of the bout.

Macchiavello’s bronze medal opponent has been determined, Mohammed Fardj of Algeria, a two-time African Junior champion. 

In women’s freestyle, 2017 Junior World champion Maya Nelson (Colorado Springs, Colo./Sunkist Kids/OTC) was pinned in her semifinals bout against 2010 World bronze medalist Henna Johansson of Sweden in 5:14. Nelson was trailing 2-1, when she attempted an attack, and was taken to her back by Johansson.

Nelson’s bronze-medal opponent will be 2018 U.S. World Team member Forrest Molinari (Iowa City, Iowa/TMWC/Hawkeye WC), who had been beaten by Johansson in the quarterfinals.

Three other U.S. men’s freestyle wrestlers have been pulled back into repechage, two-time World medalist James Green (Lincoln, Neb./Sunkist Kids/Nebraska WTC) and 2016 Olympian Frank Molinaro (Norman, Okla./TMWC/Oklahoma RTC), both at 70 kg/154 lbs., plus Riley Lefever (State College, Penn./ Nittany Lion WC) at 92 kg/202.5 lbs. All three could also earn a spot in the bronze-medal round with repechage wins on Friday.

The event is being broadcast live by FloWrestling.

Thanks Tbar… 

I didn't feel as if I needed to explain why you put water on plants to help make them grow, instead of Brawndo.
