    no, the whole delegation arrived at Wednesday, with 6 Greco and 3 freestyle wrestlers. Goudarzi, A. Mohammadi, Talebi and Sadeghzadeh won't wrestle here.

    Shame, i thought the rest were arriving, so many match ups lost, some were training in kensington. Clearly britain should not host a olympics if they can not allow the athletes to compete.

    U.S. receives freestyle draws for Olympic Test Event in London, England | TheMat.com - USA Wrestling yet another Kilgore/Belanovsky match

    Check out the greco results. A ton of big studs not medalling, which I suppose is par for the course for Greco. What caught my eye the most is Sourian, 5th at 60.

    Metcalf smashed everyone at this event, if the us don't have him rep 66 they're crazy the guys has consistently proven himself at international level this past year.
    Jafari beat escobedo,
    geduev beat aliyev and beat howe heavily in the final,
    lashgari lost to ktsoev, he was a period and a point up kept getting caught with pushouts, ktsoev is wrestling sharipov in the final, ktsoev beat herbert and lashgari will wrestle herbert for 3rd.
    belenovsky should win 96, 120 haven't really looked.

    lashgari beats herbert 3-0 1-0, much better wrestling from him in this tournament.

    According to themat results it was Jordan, not Herbert at 84. Which is correct?

    Huge win by Metcalf, beating Hasaynov in the semifinals. This guy is a 2x world medallist and has beaten Metcalf badly twice before. Probably Metcalf's most impressive win to date- is video available anywhere?

    If Metcalf wrestles smart, he should definitely win the US spot. He just needs to stay patient and stay out of dangerous positions,.
