Kyle Dake - The Golden Boy

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys! Somewhat new to this forum. Does anyone know when the Olympic freestyle matches begin? Is there a consensus on how far he will go? I'm really looking forward to see how Kyle does. Thanks!

I think the US fans generally think he has a great shot at gold.  Logically he should not be considered a favorite over 2X defending champion Sidikov but I think he will pull it out and I believe many American fans feel the same way.   

Men's Freestyle starts on 8/3/21 with Qualifying rounds for 57 & 86 kgs.  The broadcast on the Olympic Channel starts at 10 PM .  Overall the wrestling starts on 8/1.  The 1st 3 days have 2 GR weights and 1 women's FS weight each day.  The next 3 days have 2 Men's FS and 1 WFS weight each day.

I could see him anywhere from bronze to gold (don't see him at a DNP finish, but I also didn't see that happening to Burroughs in 16 either). I am predicting gold but sidakov and chamizo are very good (as are others)

Extremely high likelihood that he finishes no worse than bronze, but if he draws and loses to Chamizo/Sidakov prior to the semis and the standard monumental upset at the Olympics occurs, then he could unfortunately go 0-1 or 1-1.

Those are the same days as the actual competition.  You might be right, but do you have a source for this information that you can share?  Thanks.

I got them off the USA wrestling site. Each weight class preview had the 'draw' date.  It's the time difference that got ya, maybe?
