    How disappointing is it that the US only captured one medal on the heels of their tremendous performance at the 2007 worlds? What happened? Did we take a couple of steps back, have some guys not perform as well as expected? I don't follow Greco, so I'm curious why there was a big drop off from last year to this year.

    It's impressive to see how many medals were won by wrestlers from the former Soviet Union.

    Is that a sweep at 60kg?

    They did sweep 60kg and win 16 out of 28 medals.
    It is actually more surprising that they were shut out at 84kg
