Tonight's the night!

 

in a few hours, the main events of the "Beat The Streets" Wrestling Fest in New York will be on stage...

 

among those, an always interesting USA vs CUB freestyle team match (with a juicy Kyle Snyder vs Reineris Salas Perez in the -97kg class) and, above all, the big challenge: Jordan Burroughs vs Frank Chamizo Marquez (freestyle wrestling, -74kg class)...

 

here are some notes:

and here's tonight's full program:

https://www.flowrestling.org/events/6143852-2018-beat-the-streets/schedule

 

unfortunately, I only found this Flowrestling website's paid streaming to watch this event (and I'm not gonna give them 12+ dollars for a single exhibition show like this)...:cry::facepalm::wall:

I hope tomorrow some free video will be uploaded here and there...:whistle:

 

p.s. I did notice that there is also some space for the currently suspended (for doping) Togrul Asgarov, which is a shame for such an amazing event...:redcard::thumbdown:

and finally the big bout has happened...

 

and Jordan Burroughs won it by the minimum margin (6-5) thanks to a late comeback...

 

Chamizo started on fire and quickly went 4-0 up (the 3rd and 4th point came thanks to one of his wonderful trademark counters after Burroughs grabbed Frank's leg and looked to be in control of the action)...

 

then, when the American seemed to be in a lot of troubles, a stop to clean the mat was required...and after this couple of minutes break, JB started to find his rhythm and scored his first 2 points...

 

at the beginning of the second round, Chamizo started once again better than Burroughs and got his 5th point, but then he clearly gassed out and let the American too many leg grabs, 2 of which led him to score and take the lead with less than a minute to go...

 

Chamizo unfortunately didn't have much left in the tank and actually it was Burroughs to get closer to another couple of points than Frank getting a chance to score again...

 

final notice...the bout was heavily influenced by a very slippery mat...both guys weren't able keep their feet steady enough and this was a pity (and honestly I think it was more a problem for Chamizo and his attempts to counter Burroughs leg grabs)...

 

 

here you can see the full match for free (even if I don't know how long this video -clearly illegally recorded and shared- is going to stay on YT):

A guy named Akhsarbek Gulaev just won silver for Slovakia at the European U23 Championships in the -74kg class losing the final against Russian Zaurbek Sidakov. He apparently won all his previous games of the tournament by superiority... Interesting, our wrestling federation attended some Black Friday shopping in Russia :lol:

 

since our team for the U23 Europeans was already composed of 5 naturalized guys...If we count that the almost entire senior team of last tournaments composed only of Russian born athletes, the future of SVK wrestling is a bit worrying :mumble:

 

I don´t see how a Slovak youngs can be even motivated to start doing this sport, when they´ll rarely reach the national team

 

Spoiler

FS:

-57 kg: Martin Gatiaľ

Iran won the team title in World Freestyle Cadet Championship in Croatia. finally a bit success for our freestyle program ! even though winning 3 out of 10 gold medals is not something to celebrate too much but some of these kids did great and that was the first team title for Iran after 22 years !

 

USA and Russia finished 2nd and 3rd in team ranking . I wonder if Iran already seleceted the wrestlers for the Youth Olympics (cuz Iran qualified 3 wrestlers and have to pick 2) but if not Zare at super heavyweight deserves one of the spots. other two guts won silver and bronze ,it will be hard to pick any of them.

 

btw Italy also won a bronze medal in men's freestyle by a home grown wrestler. which was interesting and the Italian kid almost made it to the final. he lost narrowly to the eventual gold medalist from Uzbekistan (if I'm not wrong)

yes, and it was a great result for us...

by the way, I think Piroddu should have won the semifinal bout against the Uzbek Marfunov, first because he wrestled better than his opponent (he got even close to pin him down after 40 secs, but the Uzbek guy somehow managed to escape from Piroddu's move, so our wrestler only got 2 points -and maybe he should have got 4, too, but I'm not that expert in technicalities to be sure of that) and second because the last move with only 1 second to go should have given him 2 points (and the consequential victory after a 5-5 tie), meanwhile the judges only gave him 1 point (so he lost 5-4 in the end)...

however, when I see an Italian born and trained wrestler making the podium I'm always very happy...:d

 

p.s. however, this medal doesn't make me fully confident for the future, since I've already seen Giovanni Freni winning the world cadet title (in GR), but not being able to translate that result even at junior level (even if he's still sub-20, so maybe at the next Junior Worlds in Rome he could do what he hasn't been able to do in the last 2 years yet)...:mumble:

I just finished watching the match, I think Piroddu will remember this for a while, he gave up two takedowns both of them on his own attack. he could easily score on both but instead he gave up points ! I think the first action was definitely a 2 and not 4. cuz the action started on the ground. that wasn't a 4pts throw. and the last action was also just one point pushout . that was no way a takedown. they used to penalize these kind of actions as fleeing with 2pts + caution but if I'm not wrong the new rules say 1pts + caution ! (they change the rules day to day so even for me it's hard to be up to date about the rules :d) but I didn't understand what happened after the challenge , they removed the caution and gave the challenge thing back to the Italian coach !! if their challenge was wrong (which it was) they should gave another point to the Uzbek guy.

 

and yeah success in cadet level doesn't necessarily mean success in Junior/Senior levels. specially in Greco because Greco is less technical. but this kid has the talent, i believe he has a Greco background, he needs more experience in freestyle competition to not lose the single leg twice. this semifinal was his match to lose.
