  1. Yesterday
  2. Netherlands absent of the 2 last world cup defeated Germany 3-0 and France 2-0 ,both the WC successivly
  3. The biggest surprise of today came from a Chinese wrestler at 57 ! Zou ! he beat Russia and Cuba (5th place in Worlds Seniors) but he lost to Japan in semifinal in a match he should won. he was dominating and leading the match but made a mistake in his own attack in last 30 seconds. I'm sure China never had such a good freestyle wrestler. he was clearly the best wrestler in this weight today.
  4. what's surprising about this ? Salkazanov only narrowly lost to Jakobishvili (eventual bronze medalist and 2017 World Champion) in World Seniors few days ago. he was top favorite for the gold here. but first day of freestyle was disastrous again for the Iranian team. no surprise at all, this is a very bad team. but Morteza Ghiasi almost beat the Olympic silver medalist here (yes no kidding, Japan sent Rei Higuchi Olympic medalist to the Worlds U23 !!) he was leading 4-2. only 20 seconds left and you can guess the rest of the story Ghiasi was the only wrestler who did "good" today. the other 4 were shameful. I didn't even know two of them ! no finalist in Worlds seniors and still no finalist here, after 15 weights of Greco and Freestyle but I think we have better chances tomorrow with Ghasempour. Sadeghi, Shahbazi and even Taheri. they are all experienced in senior level.

  9. Kakva je posjecenost tamo? Sjecam se punog Spensa 90ih.
  10. Pretty much agree with this. Not that confident with so many in athletics (will have to wait for standards) and swimming (right now we would have one swimmer with A mark I think) and I´m quite pessimistic about teams. Football who knows, basketball will be hard, handball is always a coin toss... I only see rugby and both hockey teams as sure things.

    Yes, athletes themselves couldn't possibly be a problem. It's a federation by default. witchhunt.gif
  14. Between 2-4. Judo, hockey and saling the usual suspects, with tennis and other teams sports there too. Let´s see what happens two years from now, but with the current economic crisis hitting the budget and the YOG class developing for the next cycles I don´t expect big things in Tokyo.

    Agree but they have Kuzmina so...
  16. I would agree about this "pure luck" if rules of making new ranking was established before first of tournaments where teams could get points, not after last one
  17. The system per se is pretty fair, European fans will likely still complain but this group distribution that is bad for them is due to (in great part) pure luck. Or maybe FIVB planned to make 6 groups because they knew beforehand the ranking distribution would be like this?...
