    Espinal from Puerto Rico in the semi-final match, he had already won the first period and then is up 3-0 in the second when he hits this five-pointer

    HA! I saw that too. That was the OHHHH moment for me, but it was only a Bronze match, so idk. The Japanese guy was a stud.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    I really didn't know about Espinal, but I really liked his style. He was agressive--as noted--going for a 5-point move when he's already up 3-0. I only learned later that he is with the NLWC which makes me more of a fan. I know that he got a good draw, that helped to get to the finals. But he sure was fun to watch.

    Cuban slam was it for me, but in addition to the Espinal throw shown I loved his arm spin against Mashgarvilli. Also the ankle pick/ankle lace/pushout sequence Burroughs hit on Tsargush.

    ODH, in regards to your question on Yonemistu's move on another thread- he didn't travel through the air enough for 5 pts IMO. Feet didn't go over the head until Kumar was on the mat, if I remember correctly. Still a great move though.

    I have to vote for the Yonemistu because it was for the Gold.
    The Cuban throw, has to be a close second, I think he was behind at the time of the throw.





    And then the finishing punch (really was more of a fist pump with the Azeri still in the way)



    And then he does his Hulk impression!

    Alright one more. Women's wrestling Mogolian slamming a Latvian. One of the most brutal slams I have seen at any level.

    Was this a five point throw?
