    No I meant just all the people that will be in the draw. Really the draw is just dato, aldatov, goudarzi, saritov, sokhiev, which is half of the amount of top guys that could be in it.

    Saritov can definitely beat Aldatov, they wrestled a very close match at Yarygin (I think) and Saritov is probably better today than he was then. Also, Aldatov is pretty inconsistent for a world-class wrestler.

    Aldatov is inconsistent, but this is based on his previous success at 74kg. He has been a fairly mid level guy at 84. He is consistently exciting though and has that awesome shot that is very fun to watch.

    Not to mention his crazy ankle laces.

    Cael wins gold as well and Tervel gets a medal.

    What I'm thinking also.

    He was more consistent at 74, but even then he would have some wierd matches, like when he pinned himself 2 years in a row at the European championships.

    My picks exactly. I like Teyon but that 66 field is ridiculous....

    Could & will are obviously different. I don't think Saritov medals. Nope.

    If you win Russian Nationals you're a strong medal threat - if Saritov doesn't medal it will be because of the draw and because this is a wide open class. I'm not particularly confident in anyone medaling especially with excellent wrestlers like Sokhiev turning in awful performances recently.
