Curious about about first match strategies. Seems like Zahid has a lot of things going for him and the one disadvantage is his conditioning. Probably won’t win two hard fought back to back matches and probably won’t win back to back close tactical matches. So why not go balls out in the first match? Attack hard and really take advantage of your fresh offense. Then you have 5 hours to recovery win or lose. Now you have a better idea of how to attack in the last two matches and at least have energy for one match.

If he dives in on the legs of the best counter-offense 86kg wrestler in the world without a great set up, he’s giving up 2, 90% of the time. He’s going to lose nearly all of those scrambles.

His only real shot is to blow through Taylor and try to tech him in the first minute. He was very lucky there was a lengthy stoppage in the second period.

Outside of two Greco matches, Roberts-Hafizof and Nutter-Sancho, I have a hard time believing that any will go to three. I didn't see much from the challengers to make me think otherwise. 

 

 

And this is why they wrestle matches

Gwiz losing to Dhesi at Pan-am's could have been a sign that his trajectory is on the decline...he was a guy that he normally beats easily.

Agree but why the H are you not in incredible shape?

Shut up, Pyles.

I have no idea if Dom Parrish is a relation of yours or not, but just seen your username. If so, many congratulations! You must be proud.

I didn't see the match, but how did DT look? Sounds like a typical slow start then his conditioning coming clutch with TDs in the second period. Do US fans still back him to beat Yazdani in Serbia?

He looks like a guy training through WTTs.

He also looked bored.

Sounds like not enough to go on to make any inferences about his chances in Serbia. I did read that his pace seemed noticeably slower, though. He'll be 33-34 in Paris, not many guys at that weight win Olympic Gold at that age.
