Worlds day 1 results

Recommended Posts

Yazdani won. Former TWT poster Yuri Maier down 5-0 to Gayzuov when my feed cut out so Ill assume Gayzumov won. Amit Kumar (India) beat Japan 10-2. Note that Sandhu actuually beat Turkey, not France, which is a much bigger deal. Great start for Canada.

Horrible style matchup for Brent. BM's gives up points and makes up for it by wearing his opponents down. Taghavi is strong as an ox, scores on his opportunities and doens't let Brent wear on him. Garcia scores a caution to go up in his second match.

Garcia with a TD, the Kazakhi complaining the Garcia bit him! Stuff like this has happened before, unfortunately. Garcia wins an ugly match 3-2, has Germany next. Boltukaev beats Tigiev (a training partner of the Russians I think 6-0. Lopez hangs on to beat Japan in a wild match.

Relatively easy win for Taghavi there. Don't know if Taghavi is just THAT good or Metcalf was not as prepared as everyone wanted to believe?

 

Well, Taghavi is a two-time World champ. So yes, he's that good. But in terms of Metcalf being unprepared? I seriously doubt that. It's just a matter of the other guy being better. Brutal draw for Metcalf, so hopefully he'll get a chance at repechage.

Kurbanaliev beats Gor 7-7 in a wild one. A last second scramble is scored 2-2, Id like to see that again. Boltukaev with a 14-6 tech over Japan.Gayzumov looking awesome, wins by tech to set up a match with Boltukaev in the semis. Garcia with a routine 4-1 win!

Taghavi loses in the next round, so Metcalf is one and done. The guy Bergman lost to has Gazyumov next, so he is likely one and done also.

 

Escobedo has Kumar next. Even if he loses, he has at least a decent shot of being pulled back. Still, not a great start for team USA.

just got in to work late having stayed home to watch the first 4 US matches. Escobedo looked great. not that his opponents were medal threats but he took care of business. i was impressed.

 

Metcalf got a tough draw and lost to a superior opponent. Taghavi had better shots and finishes. seeing as how Taghavi lost his next match, you almost wish Metcalf hadn't have wrestled so hard and left Taghavi more in his tank for the next match!

 

Bergman's match was a real bummer. looked like he just relaxed at the wrong moment. he's going to be thinking about that one for a while. sucks but thats what happens.

 

the Yang Israpilov match was insane. very entertaining. tough break for Yang.
