    Wow. That is interesting, Azkent. Who do the fans blame for this and if it's coaching, what do you think will be done?

They arrived tired in London. No-one except for Otarsultanov could breathe properly afte 2-3 minutes of wrestling.
    Not only the wrestlers form the Russian team, but also those (Russian export to other countries) who joined the camp, Gazyumov for instance. Did you see him today?! After the quarters he lost to Andriitsev, he couldn't even walk, had to be helped. He had very low blood pressure and got carried to a medical center. (He thought Andriitsev would no way beat Yazdani in the semis, so he couldn't wrestle back. But on the way to the medical center, he get a phone call with the news Yazdani got injured and was going to withdraw, so he decided to use his chance for bronze medal and he returned to the hall. You possibly watched his match vs. Tajikistan; Gazyumov was almost dead).

    Otrasultanov is the only exception because he was the only one team member who didn't practice with the team. He was in the camp but since he had a leg injury (he got at the nationals), he had his own individual training program and didn't participate in the training sessions of the team. That's why he could breathe at London.
    Why were they making such drastic changes with such a track record of success?
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    These are questions the coaches and the federation are expected to answer when they return home.
    In thousands of messages and comments on boards and in social groups, tha fans blame the new head coach Guseinov who got appointed an year ago after Jambulat Tedeev got dissmissed for political reasons (his political activities which Kremlin disliked); they want Tedeev back in the team.

    Very interesting. Didn't know about the changes they went through.

    I noticed that both Gadisov and Gazyumov looked knakered by the second round.
