Frank Chamizo (74 kg, #1 seed...but what's the advantage when Demirtas and Borroughs are not seeded? :crazy:)

Agree 100%. I dont get the seeding structure at all. UWW must find some other way to seed top wrestlers. This one has 0 effectivness.

Freestyle team is weak. From what i know Iran has huge financial problems which is affecting financing wrestling as well. November according to UWW calendar Iran is going to host U-15, cadet and junior international tournaments. Do you think there is a possibility they can be cancelled?

 

because of daddy Trump. the whole economy of Iran is in crisis now. but hosting competitions is not a big issue yet. the problem is sending teams abroad. they have to pay 3-4 times more than a year ago for plane tickets etc.

:ITA Italy

 

Freestyle

Givi Davidovi (57 kg)

Frank Chamizo (74 kg, #1 seed...but what's the advantage when Demirtas and Borroughs are not seeded? :crazy:)

Abraham Conyedo (97 kg)

 

 

at least he can get a bye in first round :d (unless there are exactly 32 wrestlers)

 

this year's seeding is a joke because they didn't consider last year WCh results (since UWW changed weight classes this year)

 

where is Kudiamagomedov ? still not eligible ?

I see. However from what i know, when iran hosts scoolbooys, cadet and junior competitions, Iranian federation pays for the tickets and accomodation. At least its the way how it works with Azerbaijan and its really good for us, due to the fact that our federation is also in crisis.

Wow, no one can afford that unless you are pretty well off.

I don't know...

I hope he's "only" injured and that there are no problems with his Italian documents (actually, it shouldn't be the case, since he already was with our team at the Europeans last May...he did even win the bronze medal in Kaspiisk)...:mumble:

I sent an e-mail to our NF...I hope they give me an answer sooner or later...

Isn't it confusing that half of the Indian athletes only have one name? I mean, there must be millions of Vijay's and Manjeet's :p

Maybe they are like heroes of one of Terry Pratchett's novel? Big Manjeet, Little Manjeet and of course No'-As-Big-As-Medium-Sized-Manjeet-But-Bigger-than-Wee-Manjeet Manjeet?

It is actually very annoying for many of us Indians as well.

 

The thing is that a large number of our wrestlers and boxers come from the state of Haryana.

 

Now I am no expert in the subject, and somebody can correct me if I am wrong, but from what I understand, many people in Haryana believe in never ever using your surname with your name because your surname identifies your caste. 

 

There has been some unfortunate caste-based violence in the past in Haryana and, as a result, many believe that the best way to avoid it is to just never ever reveal your caste as it doesn't matter. In fact, I think some of the big boxing and wrestling stables in Haryana actually have a rule that you are not allowed to use your surname.
