I know.  When I saw her out there I seriously was wondering how she qualified.  That's not even a joke.  If you saw the match, you'd get what I'm talking about.

Fair enough. I’m not going to go find a judo match from 2012 though. I’ll trust your judgement

 it’s the Olympics! Everything may be different because of COVID no fans, no families, etc. But the athlete’s are more inspiring than ever. Can you imagine what it took just for them to compete this year? And they’re still setting records!

Well Hadizov tried absolutely nothing besides being a tough guy and it didn’t work. Maybe the rest of the Greco guys will explore a different route.

Why did the Egyptian give up when he was only down one with twelve seconds left?? It was a great back and forth match.

my take was that his game plan had failed by then.

I’m sure you saw the same scoring opportunities as I did. I won’t critique the wrestlers technique, but we have this match strategy of just outfighting and praying to be rewarded for it, when other countries are striving for takedowns. It’s like what middle school coaches think Iowa style is, but for Greco.
