Those from cooler regions usually can hold their own in hockey and skiing.

    Russian system places emphasis on using other sports for warm-ups during practices for like 20 minutes to half an hour and for ?active rest? from wrestling as they call it. Usually 2 days a week are spent playing soccer or other sports for about 1-2 hours.

    I trained in Russia for 4 years. When I came to America I was good enough to make varsity soccer team at my high school. In Russia I was the best cross country skier for my age in my school out of 60 people. My parents and I went cross country skiing every weekend during the winter which is 6 months in Russia.
    I'm just repeating my Russian buddy's philosophy, and he was a very respected coach in Russia.

    Your Russian buddy is right but to say Russian wrestlers are somehow less proficient in a couple of other sports than American wrestlers is completely wrong.

    Face it Spider, for all its wealth America is real cheap on sports development within its population. It is much cheaper to provide different sports in schools for a few months each than to spend money on clubs with full time coaches available all year around for all different sports.

    PS I will never forget maintenance people at my high school telling me I can't keep the wrestling mat in the wrestling room because it has to be rolled up to prepare space for baseball equipment storage since the wrestling season is over. How was it over when I had NY freestyle states in 2 months to qualify for Fargo? I often had to drive to Blair for 1.5 hours and upstate NY to get quality workouts when I was old enough to drive. This is your main problem Spider.

    Its one and the same. That would also mean two people know something about wrestling. The world must be coming to an end because now two people outside of gallan know something about wrestling and Notre Dame finally scored a touchdown.

    No shit! We had a camp back in Aug and had our room all nice and set up until volleyball needed an extra place to warm up for our home tournament. So, we go out of our way to roll up mats and let them in. Guess what? One of the neighboring schools had a group of girls steal some school stuff out of our room, graffiti our room and then when we complained to the school admins about it, they don't want to do shit about it because it was Pat Kilkenny's niece(The douche AD at UO who cut the program). talk about some bullshit!

    I could drop your name but I doubt even Belaglasov, or Smith, or Fadzaev, or Khardtsev, have the credentials to legitimately do that. Maybe Karelin does.... but even that would be a stretch.
