    Be interested to see how the new faces to the top level do in their first World Championships.

    Also excited to see Kudukhov up a weight, he looked absolutely nasty in the Flo videos from Russian Nationals.

    I'm very excited to see how Gadisov will do. Also, I'm excited for Gatsalov. It's time for him to prove his worth after missing out on Beijing.

    So, what's the scoop on Otarsultanov? What happened to him this year?

    Were there any duals in the room?

    I believe Tsargush is from Abkhazia.

    I couldn't find any other info about the other wrestlers that didn't make the team. Although Dzambolat Tedeyev sounded very confident about their team this year with all the new and young guys participating this year. The only guy returning this year who wrestled and medaled at Beijing is Kudukhov.

    Never count any Russian champ out but this team could well be upset for the team title. Luckily for them most of the weights are wide open... my predictions

    55: Won by Velikov (Russian doesn't medal)
    60:Won by Kudukov
    66: Won by Stadnik or Shahin (haven't made up my mind yet, Russian doesn't medal)
    74: Won by Chama (Tsargush 3rd)
    84: No idea who is competing, but I'll pick Mindo to win and Gadisov to come in 2nd and be the next big thing for Russia
    96: Gatsalov wins again
    120: Dlagnev wins, Makhov 2nd

    What's up with Muradov? He was one of the world's best pound-for-pound last year IMO. Hopefully he isn't retiring for good.

    Spin, I like your pick at 120kg. Ballsy. I don't see it but ballsy anyways. You never know though. Akzent doesn't know if Muradov is retired or not but not wrestling this year.
