There are no other tourneys.
Participating in a the tourney in the town of Targovishte was a good choice. As kr1963 mentioned it was the town where Vlad III Dracula was enthroned 555 years ago. ))) Very symbolic! ;)
Jake Varner captures title at Ion Corneanu Memorial in Romania | TheMat.com - USA Wrestling
Jake Varner won three matches to capture the title at the Ion Corneanu Memorial on Sunday.
Varner downed past World silver and bronze medalist Krassimir Kochev of Bulgaria 4-0, 0-1, 1-0 in the freestyle finals at 96 kg/211.5 lbs. Varner, a quarterfinalist at the 2009 World Championships, will compete at next month?s Worlds in Istanbul, Turkey.
Kochev, 37, was second in the World in 2001 and third in 2002. He is a two-time Olympian.
Varner (State College, Pa./Nittany Lion WC) opened the tournament by sweeping Macedonia?s Dejan Bogdanov 6-0, 7-0 before downing Germany?s William Harth 6-0, 2-0.
Varner won a title in Romania one day after his training partner and mentor, 2004 Olympic gold medalist Cael Sanderson, claimed the title at 84 kg/185 lbs. on Saturday. Sanderson, 32, the head coach at Penn State, is back competing again for the first time in nearly seven years.
American Andrew Bisek (Colorado Springs, Colo./Minnesota Storm) won a bronze medal in the Greco-Roman competition on Sunday at 74 kg/163 lbs. Bisek went 4-1 on Sunday.
Americans Pete Gounaridas and Moises Hernandez each lost their first match at 96 kg/211.5 lbs. on Sunday.
Forum posters crack me up. Both the mat and here are basically busting on Cael for kicking the holy dog shit out of his competition by saying he went into a tourney full of scrubs....How bout a little excitement for the fact that hes doing it and the fact our world team looks to have 4 "real medal hopefuls"
Dlagnev, Sanderson, Burroughs, and Varner are my 4. I think Humph and Ware can win a couple and I'm liking Simmons as a possible medalist to make it 5 out of 7 which would be awesome
They should have been in Poland.
Varner beat a dude who hadn't made noise in 9 years.
RD, I'm picking Sanderson to win worlds. I just look forward to seeing him against better competition. This tourney was a bit of a joke.
It's too bad. Varner has a legit shot at winning gold as well in my opinion.
I look forward to the Worlds.
