    Default ESPN classic- 72 olympic wrestling

    This weekend will have a one hour show with matches from the 72 Olympics. It will be broadcast several times.

    Pretty cool, I just watched it. This confirmed what I had long suspected- wrestlers look a lot more impressive with good quality footage I'd seen a lot of the same matches as grainy, black-and-while youtube videos, and it just isn't the same. Loved Wayne Well's match vs the German.

    Par terre has clearly changed a lot since '72, the lack of gut wrenches was very noticeable. I was told that back then you could not expose your own back to score, so doing a gut wrench was pointless. By the 84 Olympics people were being gutwrenched all over the place.
