Greco Roman Wrestling

WTF is this shit? alm:

1m30s of two dudes gently shoving each other and then the par terre.

Every match seems to be decided by the lottery. The guy who gets to defend in the par terre wins.

Lame, just kick the sport out please!

Yeah it's a bit strange to watch and rather like Judo, it kind of annoys me a bit with all the restrictions.

Just wait until the freestyle wrestling begins, that is some real shit. The hardest sport in the world IMO.

the thing is, it's one of the original olympic sports and will never be dropped. It's kind of cool to watch idk, just not particularly pure grappling.

Yeah, that too. But I didn't want to come across as a homophobe so I left that part out.

The tournament format is already ****ed up with eliminated wrestlers being allowed back into the tournament to wrestle for the bronze. So here is Nacka's suggestion to improve the sport. If both wrestlers in a match are unable to take at least one point from the stand up wrestling they are both eliminated.

FILA should make me an honorary member of the executive committee for coming up with this revolutionizing idea that will save the sport.

FILA


But I could probably work wonders with the clothing brand as well. I have very valuable opinions.

Proud of Iran. They did amazing for Greco-Roman which is their weaker flavor. 3 golds.

Freestyle is much better to watch. Less hugging and cheap pushing, a lot more action from the wrestlers. A lot more points involved. The refs have been great so far.

This is late for predictions but I'm going to post them anyways (Freestyle):

55kg= Otar Sultanov (won the European championship twice)
60kg= Besik Kudukhov (a ton of wins in the world championships)
66kg= Mehdi Taghavi (Iran's biggest favorite in freestyle)
74kg= Denis Tsargush (He'll figure out his mistakes against Jordan)
84kg= Sharif Sharifov (hard one to call, but he came off a good world win in 2011)
96kg= Reza Yazdani (has some good wins over Varner and Balci)
120kg= Bilyal Makhov (did well at the world's)

Jordan Burroughs is a huge favorite at the 74 kg but I'm hoping for an upset. He's quite arrogant. He even has a personal website with the phrase "All I see is Gold". I hope Tsargush can put him in his seat.

Agreed. I'm not into any sport apart from football but I watched this a few days ago because a guy from Egypt (won silver in 84kg, Karam Gaber) was playing.

What they're wearing is gay, and what's with the defence thing, with one wrestler sticking out his arse to the opponent?
