Thread: Freestyle wrestling might be in jeopardy

    Default Re: Freestyle wrestling might be in jeopardy

    OK. I've been listening to this North Korean housewife conspiracy for waaaay too long. I decided to do some research.

    Since the inception of the 48 kg weight class in 1972 and the elimination in 1996 (25 years) North Korea had won a grand total of 9 medals (6 Gold and 3 Bronze) in Freestyle wrestling and ZERO in Greco.

    So let's focus just on Freestyle:

    In 25 years the Soviet Union won 22 medals, Bulgaria won 8 medals, Japan won 6 medals. South Korea (the capitalist Democracy) won 10 medals. That's right, 1 more medal than their filthy Commie housewife hating Northern neighbors.

    So, where's the domination?

    I haven't gotten to 52 kg, where I know for a fact you will find a ton of medals from Bulgaria, Japan, and Iran and maybe 4 tops from North Korea.

    But yeah they eliminated the weights due to North Korean dominance.

    see for yourself:

    quick,

    That much research is unnecessary. PRK wrestler at 48 won in 92 and 96. Before 92 there was still Soviet Union and nobody gave it much thought.

    In addition to that USA never won a Gold medal in full Olympics at this weight, North Korean won in the heart of the West in Atlanta, North Korea was only good at two weights and my argument still holds water.

    Since getting rid of weights just in freestyle would seem suspicious and North Koreans could always switch to Greco, both styles had lower weights dropped.
