    Default 55 kg freestyle- Olympic predictions

    If someone else wants to post a full preview I'm sure it would be appreciated; I don't have the time or energy.

    My pick is Otarsultranov; I think he's been the second best wrestler on Earth at this weight for a while now and will finally be #1. Love his style too, heavy handed with a lot of throws and turns from on top.

    Love the poll Arm Spin I think you should do the same for the other 6 weights. I like Ostarsultranov a lot as well. His Russian tournament matches were great.

    Got to go with Otarsultanov as well.

    Like I've said in the past I've always enjoyed watching him even going back to 5-6 years ago when he was butting heads with Cejudo.

    What are the odds that Haze earns a medal at this weight?

    I saw a post on twitter today that Otarsultranov hurt his knee. They are considering putting Lebedev in for him. twitter handle is Ivan_FSwrestling. I don't know who he is but seems close to russian national team.

    The same Twitter account is suggesting Lebedev beat Kudukov (not Otarsultranov) in a practice match and is now going to be on the Russian team. I don't really "get" Twitter but the same guy seems to be encouraging Burroughs to beat Tsargush and trash talking the other American competitors.

    Sucks for Otarsultranov if true.

    July 6, it was a 3 periods match; the score was like 1:0, 0:1, 1:0 (or 1:1); all point in action, no clinches.

    Some fans say Kudukov was recently too much focused on physical training what he actually never did before. He looks almost like a bodybuilder now and seems to have problems with this. Here a photo from the same practice:
