Match 2, Canada vs Poland. Go Carol!
Period 1- both wrestlers feeling each other out. Not much action. Carol takes a shot, Poland sprawls and cradles her to her back. Carol gets to her stomach but loses the period.
Period 2- Carol in deep on a single leg, takes her down after a bit of a struggle. Carol with a leg lace, takes Poland right across her back, I thought it was a fall but the referees don't. Canada wins period.
Period 3- neither wrestler doing much. Carol with a few half-shots. Going down to the clinch. Carol gets the leg, doubles up right away, drives Poland to her but and exposes her back. Canada wins the bronze medal.
gold medal final, Japan vs Russia
period 1- Japan with a snap down go behind. Russia clinging on to a wrist, the referee keeps smacking her trying to get her to let go. she doesn't but they give the point to Japan anyway. Russia in on a leg, Japan somehow funks out. Russia drives forward and pancakes Japan to her back! Russa with the 2-1 win at the buzzer to the cheers of the crowd.
period 2- Russia tries a knee pick but Japan steps out and gets behind for 1 pt. Japan in on the legs, Russia whizzering, no points scored. Russia with a front head lock, trying hard to score by snapping down. Japan fights it off. I guess that's the benefit of being a hometown wrestler, it seems like they let he have that headlock for half the period. Japan wins.
period 3- Japan misses a single, shoots a double, slowly works Russia onto her back. Russia gets off and Japan turks her over again, they go out of bounds. Russia grabs a front head lock and tries a throw, Japan catches her on her back. Russia fights off but it's a tech-fall for the period and a world title for Japan. Great match, good technique and lots of action.
