    Default gaber looked tough

    i realize it was a depleted field but gaber looked real good in this last tournament. he scored from his feet and was very active on bottom. he seems to be improving over the past year since his return from a long break.

    btw tough break for the guy from belarus who gaber beat in the semi's. he lost to gaber 2-1 and scored the only offensive points. his next bout is for the bronze and a chance to qualify for the olympics. once again he loses 2-1 while scoring the only offensive points in the match. tough way to miss an olympic berth.

    Off topic, does anyone know who that guy from Greece is? He looked reasonably tough. has he done anything notable?

    Great bodylock throw in the final match... vintage Karem Gaber move.

    Anyone remember that world finals match he lost a few years back something like 15-10? Anyone know if it can be found online?

    Thanks Akzent. Not exactly Gaber's proudest moment. I think that Gaber fans sometimes forget that for all his awesomeness, Karem Gaber won only one World/Olympic title, and was never that unbeatable.
