Mat anderson was the most freakishly tall wrestler for his weight i've ever seen.

I remember when Matt was early in HS at 103 and I was pretty much looking him in the eye. (I was probably 5'10 or so back then)

In HS I was close to 6ft and making 125lb.  But I was basically down to skin and bones to make it.  I can’t imagine someone being able to compete at a world level at that height and weight.  Let the short guys have the weight.  

Short guys, lol, in a short mans sport! Imagine!

Not 125, but Boo Dryden skies over the competition at 133. He's a towering 5'8 according to google.

I believe in a mat side interview at the Nebraska dual, Dryden confirmed he was six feet tall. Can't imagine making 133 is much fun for him.

The only person I can think of domestic or abroad at an upper tier was maaaaybe Robby Smith? In the future, I do think that Kyle Snyder will most likely bump up at least once when he hits the twilight of his career and he's around 5'9

I think Steveson is under 6 feet.

The Minnesota roster does not give heights, but I stood next to him and I think he is 5-foot-10, or maybe a bit shorter.

He doesn't cut much, that's just the way he's built.  He certified at 125 last year.

This guy who made the podium at the 2016 olympics, I am forgetting his name. He must be well under 6 foot.

Outside of that i'd say Gatsalov, even though most of his career was at 96. Maybe Riza Kayaalp too at greco 130kg.

Snyder is not that tall. I'm about 6 feet and he was at more than 3 inches shorter. I was actually surprised at how tall he was in person.

Interesting picture-

So who has the most Olympic medals in that picture?

Who do you think will be on the podium in Tokyo?

Ibragim Saidov of Belarus Although Wikipedia says 5'11" (I know)

The Turk's wiki says 6'4" for him.
