AGON results?

Recommended Posts

Pendleton is at 96 kg. When Askren wrestled FS, the biggest issue was he would stand straight up. Presumably in folkstyle he out-funks people when they shoot, but in freestyle that's harder and he ended up getting taken down and beaten by guys he shouldn't be losing to (ie the Paulsons).

 

When Askren got taken down 3 or 4 times by the Cuban at the Olympics, they would have been takedowns in folkstyle, too.

Well, that had to be amazing to watch. You do have a good point about Q laying eggs...but that was in his amateur career. Now as a professional, you don't get to do that. Kudos to BA. I thought he would lose and I am super impressed with Ben. I watched all 4 of his NCAA Tournaments, every match pretty much.

Seriously? Have you seen Askren wrestle before? In folkstyle, Askren could and would have used a wide variety of counters where he flips and flops and often rolls across his own back several time. In freestyle, you get into a sequence like that and you just got teched. Your counter options are pretty much crotch lift or sprawl.
