    i watched several of his freestyle matches the last two years and think he is the best freestyler in world. he won from some desperate situations at the olympics in spectacular fashion. now i'm even more impressed that he wrestled greco a month before the olympics.

    any ideas if he is into greco or just trying to get more matches?

    There are 2 Ramazan Shahins in Turkey: the 66-kg FS wrestler and the 74-kg greco one. Obviously, the Fila database administrator didn't know this and listed the records of Greco Shahin in the table of FS Shahin, not in a separate one.

    i didn't think a guy training for the olympics in one style would compete in another. that being said, shahin seems like he has enough balls and talent to pull it off.

    it isnt him. the freestyler is much better than the shahin who wrestles greco. further, i beleive that the freestyler is a russian who changed his name, the greco guy is an ethnic turk
