Gatsalov un-retires, will compete at Worlds for Armenia

Recommended Posts

I really hope it is 213 as well. Anyone know? He is about 225 when he wrestles heavy-that simply is not enough. Well I guess it was enough in 2013 when he beat a stacked field of Akgul, Tervel, Geno, and that Iranian guy. The he won Bronze in 2014. He is what 35?

Wikipedia says that Gats is 36 now, so we'll see if he can still roll with the youngsters. But interely last month at the Dan Kolov, we saw Reza Yazdani ( 34 yrs ), and Valerii Andriitsev (32 yrs), competing, so is this signaling a trend that some older guys, are trying to give it a go for a run in 2020?

So he would be 37 or 38 in Tokyo. Surely he would not challenge Sad? And heavy is weak so I guess he would go there. That is old but not impossible as long as nothing breaks:-) He was starting to look really old in 2016 so I can't imagine he has a chance in 2020 as much as I love the guy!
