    Default Pan Am Games

    Pretty good tournament, especially with Venzuela's recent improvements. Includes Lopez at 120 kg greco and Burroughs at 74 kg fs. Themat is doing weight-by-weight reviews here:

    Ncube placed 2nd to Gentry at the nationals last year, I think the #1's had first choice to go.

    Injury news: Garcia and Akuffo are out, to be replaced with Ryan Lue (66 fs) and Leah Callahan (72 kg women)
    Nick Simmons is out, to be replaced with Obe Blanc.

    Kind of surprised Fuenkes is wrestling 84 kg greco, I don't know much about him but I thought he was a good sized 96 kg. Placed 3rd in the nationals last year at that weight. Word on the Canadian forum is that Latour, the 84 kg Greco champ, might not be able to make the weight anymore.

    Other than Fuenkes, all the guys going were #1 or #2 at last year's Canadian championships. GSP did not compete. I would be shocked if he actually shows up at the Olympic trails in December.

    So is this one of the Olympic qualifiers?
