Pico could not have asked for a better draw!

Recommended Posts

But if  Yazdanichiarito beat Russia in the repechage, he would have been knocked out of the tournament.   I'm not saying Russia didn't win bronze, just that it doesn't make sense to me, given the scenario where he loses in the repechage.   

Yazdani was never in the repechage.  He won the tournament!  He beat the Russian in the semis.  Pico defeated the japanese wrestler in the first round.  Takatani then came back to win the bronze from Pico's side of the bracket.  The Russian only wrestled one match in the repechage and that was the Bronze medal match.  The Japanese and the Russian never met because they were on opposite sides of the bracket.

Gotcha.   Hate the way they do that.   Could have been a great match between Japan and Russia.  Thanks for clarifying.
