    Default akzent - Ossetian theory tested ???

    74 kg finals at the Golden Grand Prix featured two Ossetian wrestlers -- Soslan Tigiev, representing UZB and Irbek Farniev, representing Russia.

    I thought if two Ossetian wrestlers met the unspoken rule was that the one representing Russia had to win.

    If your theory is correct, how could Tigiev win this match?

    Maybe he just wanted to win. It's not like it's an official international rule, so that if you break it, you are punished.

    It's a tourney, not worlds.
    There will be no opportunity to test the theory in any other matches of Tigiev. He will be not in Denmark (rumors say).

    What the hell is going on? Does nobody want to wrestle anymore? These worlds seem watered down.

    This is an opportunity to have a new geography of medalists.

    Soslan Tigiev had a serious car accident a week ago. He is still in a hospital.

    That sucks Akzent. I hope Tigiev gets better soon and suffers no permanent damage.

    Are you implying that it has been staged, i.e the medalists were told not to go to Worlds so that other countries could medal?

    Wow, I was really looking forward to seeing Tigiev after seeing what he did in Beijing. He looked really good against Saitiev. Real good solid defense.
