Only a few freestyle wrestlers participated. In the most weight classes, there were less than 10 wrestlers competing in each class. Kazakhstan and Romania came with some of their best wrestlers.
An upset for me is Emzari Bedenidis' (GRE) 1:4 loss to Leonid Spiridonov (KAZ) at 74 kg.
Gennadi Laliev (KAZ) wrestled again at 96 kg. I watched him at 96 kg at another tournament an year ago. He looked fat. He hasn't made any successful competitions since the 2004 Olympics when he placed 2nd at 74 kg.
In GR, more wrestlers participated. In the teams of Germany, Russia, Kazakhstan, Italy and the Scandinavian countries, some of their top guys wrestled. 2 Russian top wrestlers who hadn't participated at their nationals last week, wrestled at that tournament ? Mishin and Samurgashev (+ any of his brothers). Interestingly, the two times world champ Ara Abrahamian (SWE) made another comeback ? again a unsuccessful one.
