St. John vs Taylor
St. John vs Taylor
Taylor is blue right?
I scored 2 pts Taylor for that last flurry (you only get 3 if you go straight from feet to back) and then 1 pt for St. John for the dump at 7:56, so 3-2 is correct IMO. I do think Taylor could have been awarded a fall though, at 7:45 you can see the ref raise his hand to signal a fall, but it is not confirmed by the other officials (2 out of 3 must agree for a fall to be called.)
Dilshod Mansurov Matches:
Esmalipour vs Mansurov- fall definitely called in this one.
Mansurov vs Kudukhov. Mansurov clearly injured in this one- (or cheating going on) as he kind of rolls over in the second. Maybe the knee gets torqued at 2:18?
I think I've posted this before, but it's a good one- Mansurov/Tulbea world finals.
Mansurov vs Yang, Asian games final. Anyone know what happens at 3:27? I assume Mansurov crotch lifts but it happens out of the frame.
Mansurov vs Velikov. What a beast on top!
Mansurov vs Kudukhov, Olympic bronze. Kudukhov is unbelievably quick!
I don't know if this has been posted before, but when I searched Sergei Beloglazov, this thread didn't come up. Anyway, I have been reading about him in Silent Gladiators and found this match. Pretty cool throw and pin.
Bronze and gold medal medals of a Russian greco tournament. Samargashuev loses in the finals, Khustov wrestling for bronze!
I'm not usually one to complain about the international rules, but it seems like for many guys greco has turned into a pure gut wrench competition. Some nice ground counters and a few good throws as well, but nothing much on the feet from these guys. 96 kg final is the best.
Sydney 2000 69 kg Greco final Azcuy vs Nagata
Holy crap Koopa! I saw highlights from that match on the TV when it happened and have never been able to find it since.
From this year's Yarygin:
Ororsultranov/.Bogoev. The counter throws in this one are just incredible, great scrambling ability!
Another Metcalf match., I'm pretty impressed with his preformance from these last two videos, he maintains good position and clean finishes throughout his attacks.
Baritov/Kasumov. Seriously... a half nelson pin the Yarygin semifinals?
Akhmedov/Akhmedov super match. Are these guys related and, if so, why are they wrestling?
Herbert/Urishev. Great match.
Urishev/Gadisov. I don't get these top Russian 84's. They can all score a ton of points- these guys both put up 9 on Herbert- but put them together and they just stand there. This match does feature a few good scrambles in between the lengthy periods of doing nothing.
Hebert/Gadisov for bronze.

Gadziev/Humphery Schultz semi. Flying lessons!
