    Akzent,

    Notice in my quote Karelin says 12-14 June. June is a mistake. It should be August but 12-14 is when Greco guys are wrestling, not women or freestylers. Then he talks about how the team doesn't have enough confidence and could possibly perform poorly at Olympics. Surely that's the Greco team.

    Go to biggest Russian search engine yandex.ru and search for "klassicheskaia borba", then for "greko-rimskaia borba". In the first case it returns about 15.000 matches. In the second case the matches are about 199.000.

    Big, I wonder are you ignorant or ill.

    All I am saying is that among Russian wrestling circles it is still classical wrestling.

    But for the sake of stopping madness I will say this: When I lived in Russia, Greco -Roman was known only as classical wrestling. In America it was always Greco-Roman.

    Must be a different Akzent that prefers the word "klassiki" to Greco Roman:
