    It seems like Hahn and Mocco wrestled the same guy. Why didn't they bring a good HWT?

    I don't know who Mocco wrestled but this is what that other site posted:

    120 kg/264.5 lbs.
    Steve Mocco, Colorado Springs, Colo. (New York AC) dec. Soslan Gagloev (Russia), 1-0, 2-0

    Obviously both Hahn and Mocco have wrestled Soslan G.
    Notice the fine difference in the family names:
    96 kg - Soslan Gogloev, 3rd at the 2007 Russian nationals. He is 2006 European champion (writen Gagloev in fila database).
    120 kg - Soslan Gagloev, 5th at the nationals.

    Gogloev's 3rd place match, 96 kg

    If only the Americans cared to notice such slight but important difference:

    96 kg/211.5 lbs.
    Soslan Gagloev (Russia) dec. Damion Hahn, Ithaca, N.Y. (New York AC), 1-0, 0-3, 1-0

    120 kg/264.5 lbs.
    Steve Mocco, Colorado Springs, Colo. (New York AC) dec. Soslan Gagloev (Russia), 1-0, 2-0

    BTW, there is an internationally successful Ossetian sumotori whose name is also Soslan Gagloev. I think Gagloev the HWT FS wrestler and Gagloev the sumotori are 2 different persons.

    Big - my Russian friend missed it too, so take a chill pill.

    And really it's not that important.

    I am cool, I am cool. Say quick why did the Russians lock me out of viewing their website? Do you have that problem too?
