    I'm assuming that both Saitievs and Taymazov is retired for this one...

    Double Leg: Taghavi

    High Crotch: Gatsalov

    Single: Murtazaliev (low single), seems like all the top guys have a good high single

    Upper Body Offense (Freestyle): Shahin, Stadnik


    Shot Defense: Gatsalov

    Clinch Defense: Tsargush, Muradov, Dudaev

    Greco Offense (From Neutral): Balazar Kiss (throws), Albiev (variety)

    Gut Wrench: Farniev hi-gut, Mijan Lopez low gut

    Greco lift/throw: Kvirkvelia and Khustov

    Leg Lace: Aldatov, easily

    Cardio: Kudukhov

    Strongest: Lopez (big guys), Yang (small guys)

    Most Athletic: Dlagnev (big guys), Albiev (little guys)

    Most Underrated: Sokhiev (also wins the "most eye gougingly boring" and "defying probability during the ball grab" categories)

    2009 Match of the Year: fs- Chamasurlaev vs Tigev, Gatsalov vs Makhov Gr- Amorayan vs Choi at worlds, Madsen vs Cebi world finals.

    2010 Match to See: Batirov vs Kudukhov, challenge match Albiev vs Sourian

    Best Overall (Greco): Lopez, Albiev close 2nd

    Best Overall (Freestyle): Gatsalov

    Pinner: Gogchelidze (assuming Adam Saitiev is done)

    Self-pinner (world champions only): Ketoev, Aldatov

    Thats right but he could be put also into a category "quickest shot" (mostly double leg). He did it several times at the worlds; I can recall this in the match vs. Aldatov.
    Watch this - year and a half earlier - at 1:45, 4:15, 5:05

    and another category, in which he would be the best/fastest one - fleeing ankle picks

    What kind of shoes Sokhiev uses? Very low shoe...

    The "cool under pressure" award goes to Shahin. In his two championship runs he beat Stadnik 2x, Garzon 2x, Farniev, Taghavi and Tushisvilli in some pretty epic matches.

    The "crumbles under pressure" award goes jointly to Tushisvilli and Garzon for their many "close but no cigar" attempts to capture the 66 kg title.
