    Default Golden Pylon Award

    I've decided this forum needs a new award, to be awarded after major competitions to wrestlers who win by doing as little work as possible. The award will be knowsn as the Tsarghavi Golden Pylon, in honor of perennial winners Tsargush and Taghavi, who flat-out refuse to score more than one point per period.

    To be eligible for this award you must
    a) be sucessful. This isn't a trophy for wrestlers aren't good enough to score.
    b) be boring. Clinches, penalty points, and rideouts (in college) are encouraged.

    Recent Winners:


    2008 Olympios- not much to chose from in a pretty exciting tournament, but Muradov gets it as his semis and finals both were decided in a clinch (also clinched 2x in Russian national finals)
    2009 Russian nationals- Tsargush all the way.
    2009 Worlds- 3 way tie between Sohkiev and award namesakes Tsargush and Taghavi
    2010 WTT's- Obe Blac, way too many clinches for a lightweight.
    1010 Russian Nationals- not done watching but Ksotev (1 pt in last 2 matches) and Saidov (beat Gatsalov by doing nothing) are strong contenders.

    Please add your tournaments and nominatiions for this prestigious award!

    Tsargush competing for his own award: based on the flowrestling commentary, he went to the clinch 3 periods in a row. Lost all the ball grabs. Won all 3 periods. I hate this guy. How do you beat someone if he gives you his leg and still wins? The only reason his finals opponent took him down is because they let him clinch in a double.

    I haven't watched Tsargush's matches from the nationals, so I don't know the answer. I know how it happened in the finals of the last worlds. He lost the ball but won the period and the match because he started to defend before referee's whistle. Chamsulvaraev actually couldn't take his leg; the referee didn't stop the action.

    I actually thought they were talking about Valiev when they brought that up.
