This bronze match at 60 between Russia and Moldova made no sense. They called Moldova for passive when he was the aggressor then called him for a caution and 2 after 5 seconds in par terre. Lost a challenge and gave up 2 on a gut to lose 9-1. Ref was totally in the bag for this one. 

i watched it and don't recall even batting an eye on any calls...

the reffing has been super consistent and a pleasure to watch as compared to our domestic reffing...

I don't think Adeline was mentally ready to go. Just didn't seem confident with her attacks and hesitant for some reason. She should have won. The German I don't think is as good. 

Seemed pretty dang nervous, and the German took her out of her rhythm by making a breaking ties and not letting Adeline establish. Gray did violate a couple pretty basic rules: Never hit the mat before them when you have a single up. Never push in with double-underhooks. Rotter-F___ was brilliant in capitalizing.

Yeah, the German wrestled a very smart match. Capitalized on Gray trying to force a couple of positions and didn't make any mistakes herself. If Gray didn't try to get fancy with that first single leg and tried to finish in a typical fashion or even got a push out, the match could have gone very differently as the German would have had to go on the offensive.
