61 KG - Reece v. Scott in the challenge finals with Reece winning.

Best of Three - Kennedy takes 1st, Humphrey takes 2nd, Kennedy gets the spot winning a close third match.

 

70 KG -Russell v. Schlatter/Green, I'm torn.  I'll go Green, only because I'm not sure Schlatter won't pull out early with an injury.

I take Green to make the finals against Marable.  Marable wins in 2.

Like 2012, being Coleman Scott's year, I believe that this year will be Jimmy Kennedy's year. Or at least I hope. He has had some really good international success over the past year or so, and has a win over Coleman, additionally, I believe he gives us our best chance to medal this year at this weight. I am worried that Reece might spoil it though. Reece seems have Jimmy's number, my concern really is due to the fact that I don't believe Reece can reach the podium at the Worlds.

At 70kg. If Nick Marable has gotten his weight down, and his strength up, he should be our representative, and our best shot at a medal at this weight.

Really wish the guys wouldn't default out after a loss.  Seems like Schlatter has done that for the last 10 tournaments hes entered

we need more round robin tourneys!

 

you can keep all the current tournaments the same if you must but have at least 1 invitation tournament a year with 8 guys per weight that wrestle a round robin sumo style tournament. cash prizes for number of wins. lets kickstart it. i will throw in the first $20 towards the purse.

Wow, I didn't think Coleman Would get past Reese, this should be very interesting to see the match up between him and Jimmy Kennedy. Also we can look forward to the Marable Green match up which should be fun as well.

No streaming issues, but I missed the Pami/Welch match. Any info on how Pami got the fall?

Pami shoots a snatch single to nearside cradle. 

 

Pami leads 7-4 around 2:00 left in the 2nd. Welch has momentum from the last few scores and looks likely to comeback. Pami gets in deep on a snatch single, Welch doesn't even get a chance to funk before Pami pulls the head down for a nearside to the fall.
