    Sucks for Ben Askren. Wins the #1 seed and gets Pritzlaff/Cunningham first.

    If Kolat wins his first match, we have a match up of world medallists with Bill Zadick.

    Can someone confirm that 60KG is just for show?
    The winner is not going to the Olympics, correct?

    Hopefully Abas in the form he was in 2004. Then with him with Lawal, Cormier, and whoever takes Heavy, I think we have four guys with good medal chances.
    Not saying they would be favorites and any medal they would get would likely be Bronze.

    If B. Zadick wins the trials, I still don't like his chances to medal even with World Championship Gold and all.

    A potential Ware v Gallick matchup in the quarters.

    55KG-No way that Azevedo beats Abas.

    Abas-Cejudo with Abas winning. He just knows how to peak at the right time. The layoff and injury may be a factor, but he is the defending silver medalist and to seed him 4th will only motivate him a little more than usual.

    No noe touches Abas at 55KG if he is back to his 2004 form

    Bad draw for Ben for sure.....both of those guys have been injured and are going to let it all hang out.

    Love to see the Pendleton/Herbert match; what a pair of physical guys.

    Yep, we are only sending 6 of 7 to the Olympics. 60k is a dry hump so to speak.

    Can I say that, JensenS????
