Gilman Olympic Bronze medal match

Recommended Posts

Gilman controlling center.  Hand fighting.  Iran warned for passivity.

Gilman tries a snap but not effective.  Guessing Gilman is warned now?  Could not see.  Some blood on iranian ... ear it looks like.  

1 min in.  Gilman single leg.  In but Atri threatening with crotch lift. but Gilman holds leg straight, gets angle, and gets the TD.  2-0 Gilman!

More blood on Iran, ear again ... Iranian coach is very vocal.  Not sure what he is saying.  Cleaning up blood on mat.  Long break.  

Iran in but now backs out.  Both with heavy hands.  Iran fires, Gilman reshot.  And gets a push out!  3-0.  More blod?  Oi.  Ear exploded or what?

3:50 left. Head wrap on Iranian now.  Gilman warned for hands being too heavy (?).  Iranian pulls Gilman down so Gilman shoots in, scramble but Gilman gets to a hip wrap / double and is able to get corner and around!  5-0 Gilman!!  Yes!

2nd period ... Gilman in on single.  Working up. holding leg as Iranian is trying to break away.  Wraps and gets the TD!  Nice technique here.  Loving it.  7-0!!

2 min left.  Iranian going for it.  Mostly upper body.  Not getting into leg now.  But gets a push out.  7-1.  Gilman now down on leg.  Holding on ... seems to be killing clock.  Now working up.  Comes through, Atri tries to kick away but Gilman holds it and jumps on for 2.  9-1!!    1 min left.

Gilman moving feet.  Iran goes in but Gilman blocks off.  40 sec.  30 sec.  Iran in on right leg.  Lifts.  Gilman in splits ....  to getting Iran's leg!  Wow.  Stalemate.  17 sec left.  Iran is beat now.  Not trying.

Gilman wrestled super impressively.  Great tournament.  Very nearly beat the gold medalist.  Proud of him.  NLWC training did seem to help.  Congrats to Thomas and to his whole support network.

At first I thought his first round loss was really bad. Then we saw Uguev coming up clutch like that against everyone. 

Gilman put it all out there and had a great tournament. USA is proud of that guy!
