Wrestling UWW World Championships 2018

Recommended Posts

interesting match between :UZB Vakhubov and :CUB Torreblanca in the men's -86, with the Cuban winning quite easily (6-2), meanwhile in the same class the Sudanese guy did actually show up, but his bout lasted only a minute and 7 seconds (he lost by superiority 11-0 to :VEN)...

perfect coverage from UWW. no sound for some mats. no scoreboard for some mats. you just have to pray for them to go to the left corner of the mat and maybe you can see the scoreboard. even though it's hard for me to even watch the rest of the competition after Yazdani's defeat.

Isn't that like, in the beginning of every UWW event. Their site is such garbage...

no comment on UWW website...moreover, Mat 2 continuously rewinds and get back to the beginning of the session...just another "pearl" from them...

 

by the way, easy start for :ITA Frank Chamizo (effortless 9-0 against a guy from :TJK)...:fingers:

that Tajik guy is acually Russian. not a piece of cake. but still. I think Chamizo has easy path to the semifinal against Burroughs or Sidakov. personally I hope he wins the gold and I think he will.

IJF Rulez :bowdown:

 

Being serious, when I switched to Mozilla Firefox instead of using Safari, it all worked well. Then honestly IJF is much better than UWW and World Taekwondo, as they have a mat per mat schedule and an easy way to swith from one mat to another

I can't believe this. how this is even possible !! Hosseinkhani once again lost in last 30 seconds. no matter who is his opponent. this time against Jordan Burroughs ! no matter how good or bad is his opponent. he always losses in last 30 seconds. this is happening for the 10th time in his career. only if wrestling time was 5:30 instead of 6 minutes he would be World Champion

:IRI Hosseinkhani got very close, but finally it was :USA JB to get the victory home... 

meanwhile, second match and second win for :ITA Chamizo...

very tactical start, but then he took the advantage and never looked back, conceding just a single point in the last 30 seconds to the Korean guy...

today Frank looks very focused, he's not taking any risk nor wasting energy in spectacular moves there's no need of...

You can say exactly the same thing about most of Hosseinkhani's matches. he is always close to win but ends up being the loser ! unless he is leading by more than 3-4 pts otherwise this is a sure thing he is going to lose in last 30 seconds. being a fan of him is like being masochist . even though this time I was fully prepared to see him losing like that. :d even though I wasn't expecting to wrestle this good against Burroughs. I was expecting a blowout but he just enjoys to always lose like this
