Bayar Tsyrenov was particularly interested in folk style, and asked for a scoring breakdown. After taking 5<sup>th</sup> at Russian Nationals as a 23 year old, I guess he?s looking for new challenges. We went over what kind of correlated to freestyle, 2 points instead of 1 for a takedown, 2 or 3 for nearfall depending on how long the hold is, stalling instead of passivity. He had also heard that you get one point for getting out, and two points for switching places (that one took some hand motions on both sides to communicate). ?When does the ref let you up?? he asked. ?Never. Get yourself up.? When I told him that, his eyes got bigger than dinner plates. He even started laughing at such a ridiculous notion. ?Wow, folkstyle very hard. But I really like to try.? I don?t think he was all that serious about it, but I?m sure there is a program or two that would take a chance on a Russian medalist. The immortal John Smith would be tough to beat in a recruiting battle, (they love him over here), but don?t worry Coach Ryan, I told him Ohio is beautiful during wrestling season.
