Upcoming Pan American Games

Recommended Posts

Although Wikipedia notes 41 nations represented, which countries truly have more than 2 or 3 medal contenders?

USA, Cuba, Canada, Brazil, Mexico.....Who else?

USA probably wins it rather easily.

So who from USA has the toughest time placing??

Downey will have a real tough time getting gold, also zain will have a tough cuban.  

Exactly, Torreblanca from Cuba, who always gives Taylor tough matches and Tobier, who is a world medal contender.

There are also Ortega at 57 kg and Franklin Gomez at 74 kg.

Downey should focus on winning a single match before winning a medal.  Two guys that will be in his bracket already beat him this year...

Downey looked like he went to cuba for a vacation between the trials and his last tournament. The trials he was in shape and gritty winning all the close ones, opposite true in turkey. An in shape trained downey can reverse these matches

Couldn't agree more. Went through the motions with no purpose or heart in Turkey. Has yet to win an international match. Glad to see he cut his hair.  Maybe he'll be able to see next week.

Get off his sac, nerds.

He is putting in the work in the best room he's ever been in right now. Was it.nit the first time he'd been at the OTC in that capacity? Difference in training styles takes adjusting to.

I trust our coaching staff to give us the best possible chance to medal at 86kg.
