    I agree, overall he had an impressive performance.

    I don't like that ties go to the last point scored and I hate the clinch.
    Let tied period count as ties.
    Other than that I like the rules.
    Pushout rule is a good rule. Matches go much faster and playing the edge is not a strategy.

    What is a shame is Makhov himself. He scored 6 times on push-out. When watching any match of him, you cant be sure whether you are watching a FS or GR competition.

    Go to Flo's videos from the recent Russian nationals and you will see several videos of Makhov winning in the same way as vs. Masoumi: pushing-out in a greco-sumo style.

    I was able to get by watching these matches live in school, but it was worth the risk. There were some really good matches. I'm really happy that Khudukov and Mahkov won. Mahkov was just playing with the Iranian in the second period. Also, Khudukov did a great job in this tournament; bouncing back from that dissapointing loss in Beijing really has to motivate him alot. I can't wait to see him in the years to come. He's gonna be great for us. I'm sad to see Gadisov not medal. I didn't get a chance to see his match against Herbert, but I did see his bronze medal match, and have to say that he looked pretty bad in that match. Seemed to be huffing and puffing halfway through. He looked exhausted. I couldn't believe it when I heard Herbert beat him. I gotta say, I expected more of Gadisov, although he is basically still a junior.

    Russia has done very well so far. We got one last weight class up and I hope Tsargush can come out an take gold, although this seems to be a stacked class.

    Today in a nutshell is that I'm totally bummed for Bunch he has what it takes to become one of the world's elite just pulled some garbage early and it ruined his chances, hate to say this but next year look for his protogege Reece to take that weight to a new level and will actually have some success after a four year drought. Super pumped about Herbert, he is a beast and will be great for as long as he wants to. Also Tervel is equally impressive and the USA will be tops in 2012 if Cejudo is back we get Reece in there, Caldwell focuses on freestyle, Schlatter continues to improve Herbert does as he should, Varner continues improvement and Tervel lives up to expectations USA could have a real strong shot at 5 medals in London

    Makhov's coach in an interview: Next year Makhov is going to wrestle again in both FS and GR.
    He was several times jr. national champ in both styles. In 2005 he wrestled at both jr. world championships placing 1st in FS and 3rd in GR.

    Anyone know what happened at the end of the Sokhiev/Aldatov match? The video cuts out just as they start going to the clinch... who won the ball grab?

    He's using the rules to his advantage, Akzent. There is nothing wrong with that. He overpowers everybody.
