    Much like the Iranian at 84 kilos, very clutch job by Kiss going and getting that turn in the 3rd when he needed it.

    Congratulations to M?lonin Noumonvi - called "M?lo". He carried out a very consistent tournament, but the guy from Turkey was too strong. Let's wait for tomorrow with the Gu?not's brothers. With our 20 000 wreslers it's very difficult for us in France to be competitive at that high level!

    Well I have to say, it's been crazy second day of Greco-Roman wrestling today. Some big wins, big losses, and big upsets.

    I'm very happy with Islam-Beka Albiev and his gold. He had a great tournament today and performed with dominance. He is surely the next great thing for Russia. I can't wait to see him in future tournaments. He has made us very proud.

    Aleksei Mishin. Not much I can about this guy other than I'm very dissapointed in him and mad. I couldn't believe he lost in the first round, yet alone not even medal. I expected so much more of this guy after seeing him at Euros. I thought for sure he was going to medal. He has so much potential I don't know what the Russian coaches are going to do about him. They might be having second thoughts about him (I know I am). He needs to either get back on track or put someone else in his place.

    I'm also very dissapointed in Aslanbek Khustov. Even though he had a dominant bronze medal match, he still could've done so much better and that's what angers me. After seeing his performances this past year since Beijing, I knew he was going to get gold easily in this tournament. I guess I was wrong. I was so confident in Khustov going in this tournament. Hopefully he can come back and win again in whatever tournament he enters next. I know he's got what it takes to be the best.

    Overall, very dissapointing day for Russia (with the exception of Albiev of course). I don't how Russia is going to take the team title after today. When need to come strong and hard tomorrow. We are going to need pull some big wins tomorrow if we want the title.

    Khustov was at his best from the reverse lift. Not suprising he'd be less dominant with the new-est rules.

    What are the credentials of Kiss?

    I think Michine is slowing down. He's been wrestling for a long time... that, and Greco seems to be more competitive on the world stage.

    two Bronze medals is a good result for two inexperienced wrestler, they could win something better than a bronze , especially AliAkbari who was very close to beat Kiss in semifinal. this kid can be a great wrestler in future ! this is the second medal for Tehran (after Sourian) and I hope Alizadeh can make it 3 tomorrow !

    and I am happy to see the Iranian fans with Green flags in Herning ! Greens are everywhere !

    Team ranking :
    IRI 27
    TUR 26
    AZE 22
    RUS 18

    this is a hot competition !

    I don't think it has to do with the new rules. Khustov dominated his opponents at Beijing and Euros with the same rules. He just didn't get gold this tournament which is very dissapointing, although he should've.

    I agree with you on Mishin, but he is still only 30. He's got about 3-5 years before it's time to call it quits, but he seems to be declining early. Either that or he just had a bad tournament.
