Does anyone have a link to the event in France?

Some good competition here. Sharifov who beat Snyder the last time they met will be there. Just go to an App Store and download a VPN so you can watch on UWW site. It’s free and has worked like a charm for me.

Hoping to see Yianni vs Destribats (Argentina) - the guy that pinned Retherford and prevented Retherford from qualifying the US for the Olympics.  

Retherford got in for a takedown but Destribats kept scrambling and put Zain to his back.

If memory serves Zain got the takedown and attempted a leg lace which Destribats countered and caught Zain on his back and stuck him.

They wrestled at Pan Ams last March. Score was 7-4 Yianni in the end but that's flattering to Destribats- garbage time points . . . match wasn't really super competitive IMO.

I have the same memory - Zain got the TD and got put on his back going for a scoring move from top.

That was terrible technique from Retherford. He stayed in great position all through the takedown and then never actually locked up a leg lace. He just hugged the legs and started rolling.

I've seen Gilman teach technique and he said to do exactly that if you get a guys legs together and arms around them, in transition from a takedown, even if they are uncrossed.  perhaps taught at NLWC? Or somewhere?

Not an expert on that but although he was partially locked (Left hand wrapped to Arg left leg) I think he would have needed to get Arg legs straighter. They were quite bent allowing Arg to sit up.

I think you're on to something.  I read the prior post about hugging the legs and rolling, before re-watching the video.  But by the description brought back the memory of Gilman talking about "hugging the legs and rolling" in transition... if you can't get a perfect lace, but his legs are together.

That's certainly what he was going for, and I can see if working from time to time if you are able to get it very quickly in transition where you keep some momentum going. And prior to watching that match, I would say there is would not likely be any harm in it if it didn't work. But Zain rolled on to his back and had no leverage whatsoever to force the opponent through the roll and he was easily able to just sit up on Zain and catch him there.

Yup. I think sometimes I assume wrestlers from the non wrestling countries are terrible, but Eve the terrible ones are usually pretty damn good. 
  
like I could start in a pinning combination of Zain with him on his back, and he would pin me within 10 seconds. That doesn’t apply to even “bad” international wrestlers (besides maybe the bottom couple)

Yeah, I just watched the two bouts, Destribats looks pretty good.  Not great, but a good enough scrambler to pin Zain and to catch up almost to Yianni.  I figured he must be a East European transplant but no, he has been training in Argentina for years.

I wonder if he is amazing in spite of a poor training environment, or he is so good because he was in control of his training
