US National Team 2019 Scenarios

Recommended Posts

Assuming I understand the USA Wrestling policies correctly, besides the Final X wrestlers, 8 others who 100% clinched at least a spot on the US National team (top 3 at their weight) today.  They are:

  • 57: Cruz (beat both JRod and Mueller, who are the finalists on the backside, so even if he loses to Gilman tomorrow, he will not need to wrestle for True Third)
  • 61: Graff (beat Megaludis)
  • 75: Nolf (beat Massa)
  • 79: Zahid (beat Hall)
  • 86: Heflin (beat Brooks)
  • 92: Macchiavello (beat Zilmer)
  • 97: Walz (beat Beazley)
  • 125: Steveson (beat Nelson)

All the guys mentioned in parentheses still have a chance as well, but they all need the guy who beat them today to also win tomorrow and then to win a True Third match. (For example, Megaludis can make it if Graff beats Brewer.  If that happens, that would trigger a true 3rd match between Megaludis and Brewer).   

57, 65, and 70 are more confusing since they did not have a final today.

57: Although it is very likely he will make it, Gilman is not yet 100% assured a spot on the National Team.  If he loses to Cruz, he'd need to win a True Third match against the JRod/Mueller winner.

65: The loser of Zain/Oliver will meet the winner of Molinaro/Eirmann for true third.  The only exception is if Zain loses and Molinaro wins, because Zain already won that match-up, so then he would get the spot.

70: The loser of Green/Ashnault will meet the winner of Sorensen/Chamberlain for true third.  But here there are 2 exceptions.... if that match-up is Green/Sorenson or (more likely) Chamberlain/Ashnault, then it won't be held as Green/Ashnault already won those match-ups.

Nolf will be the guy at 75kg, everyone else is running away from that weight.  ;)

79kg this year is incredible. We have Dake, Ringer, and Zahid. 

74kg next year will be incredible too. Burroughs, Dake, iMart, Lewis, and Nolf. 

Wow.

Tony Nelson earned a spot on the national team by beating Coon 4-1.

Reminds me of when we had Bruce and Erickson and somebody else that was just a stud at heavyweight.  This is a hell of a 3 deep at heavyweight.I love Gwiz, but if this kid is at that level at 19 all I can say is wow!!!
