Finals thread

How did Martinez get good so fast?  He was dismantled by Valencia in 3 straight matches in spring 2014, and Valencia is in high school.

 

He's always been REALLY good still can't account for the Valencia thing.

Right after a guy wins a national title is a pretty classless time to dump on him.  I was rooting against him, but it is still very cool to watch a kid and his family that happy in celebration.

 

I'm really not trying to dump on him my apologies if it came off that way.  I even said I thought the right guy won.

Valencia was just better.   Nothing really to account for.   He won a very close 1st match then really took over and dominated the next 2 matches.   

 

With the current size difference Valencia would probably still win, despite Martinez improvement.

No problem.  Message board posts aren't the best at communicating tone.  I probably read it wrong as much as you typed it wrong.

 

Either way I hope I see Dieringer celebrate like that.

In fairness the first match was close and came to criteria.  The second two I think Valencia got in his head.  Hopefully they rematch down the road - would be interesting to see what would happen, but it would likely have to happen at 163 in freestyle because no way Valencia cuts to 157 with his frame in college.
