Is the team at training camp? When does it start and what news outlet covers it to some extent beside flo who charges for even the tiniest of interviews?

How long is training camp? They don't wrestle until August.

Dake is relaxing barefoot in the sun and reading Krishnamurti in Sanskrit while intermittently performing extremely slow tai chi movements.  He's also growing younger like his lone hero, Sir Benjamin Button.

Steveson is practicing backflips off the ropes around a WWE ring in his backyard while wearing a Mexican Day of the Dead mask and screaming like a wild Banshee.

Jordan Oliver is locked down at an all-you-can'-eat overnight smorgasbord somewhere in Sweden before he returns to his hotel room dressed as a Roman emperor heading to the vomitorium after a lavish meal. 

Gilman the raconteur is telling stories around a campfire in Happy Valley and fashioning a new hybridic philosophy born of the synthesis of Sun Tzu's Art of War and ancient Stoic philosophy.

Taylor is herding cats and hawking wrestling shoes on a Home Shopping channel while training his two year old daughter to hand fight and improve her scrambling positions with the aforementioned stealthy felines.

Kyle Snyder is reading the Old Testament Book of Job in Cael's basement and watching grainy Russian videos of Sadulaev's youth matches  in order to gain a small advantage for their next biblical battle.

This has been a commercial-free  USA Olympic wrestling update.  Stay tuned for future episodes.  We  are roughly 100 days out from when the gladiatorial games commence.

Things are moving quite rapidly here in Olympic-landia, folks.  Our scouts in the field have a few brief updates about the Super Six Wrestlers.

Kyle Dake's new training methods are working so well (too well in fact) that he is concerned that as he grows younger each day he may become too young to wrestle officially in the Olympics by August of this year because of minimum age requirements.  He may need to enter the Cadet Worlds this fall instead.  Optimistically, he hopes he may be able to slow his reverse-aging process and thereby become the only 8 time NCAA champion who both descended and (previously) ascended in weight classes.   His plan is to go undefeated from 149 to 141 to 133 and then 125, thus besting Cael Sanderson's career.

Kyle Snyder has now switched from reading the Book of Job (whose theodicy of evil and gratuitous suffering he can longer accept) to intense scrutiny of the New Testament Book of Revelations, which he finds much more apocalyptic and in tune with the coming cross-cultural armageddon at 97 KG.

Meanwhile, Thomas Gilman's stories are becoming so beloved that they have been packaged into books on tape format and are outselling Eckart Tolle's self help works like The Power of Now.

And David Taylor's experimental training methods for his daughter are also bearing fruit.   He now believes that in a year or two she should be able to challenge Dake in an Inter-gender wrestling match as Dake descends not only in age but in weight.  All the fantasy matchup pundits and commentary seems to favor Tiny Taylor over Kid Dake.

No further word yet on Gable Steveson or Jordan Oliver except to note that it has been reported by Helsingborgs Dagblad that a large and portly tattoo-ed American man was unable to exit a restaurant in Stockholm because he was wedged in the revolving door of the building.  Some locals claim he was yelling, "I had a takedown, Stieber," but he may have been saying "I have takeout fever" since his clenched hands were full of Chinese takeout food.

I want to know what the coaches are doing!!!

Rumors in the street have me looking into several possibilities.

Is Zaddick finally on Magic Man’s good side for taking Cox out of the trials? 

Is Kevin Jackson traveling to ancient Mayan crypts to unlock the mysteries of time? 
Will Tokyo be the stage for the USA to seize the day and take home the most medals? which we would surely have gotten away with if it wasn’t for those pesky Russians.
