    Judo, you are probably one of the three guys most qualified to answer that question.

    I think you do too.

    Personally, my strategy was to pick guys and girls that have a history of consistency at the world championship. With greco wrestling especially, a lot of weights seem like a crap shoot with guys coming out of relative obscurity to medal (ie Marinov last year), often never to repeat the feat. My guys (Tsargush and Dugrenier aside) aren't necessarily my picks to win gold; they are athletes I don't expect to lose out early.

    Looking at the picks I'd say JensenS's team is constructed the most similarly to mine,

    I would say I applied that startegy as well as I looked to see who has been the most dominate/fairly dominate at their class (like Gazyumov) or at least consistent (like Sokhiev) then I tried to look at each wrestler's history & go for the person who had the most top 5 finishes in the past 4 years (like Soronzonbold or Zhang). I think a few others had this strategy as well as I had a few of my middle to late round picks PICKED OFF by others drafting before me.

    It is interesting to see that most weight classes do not have a consistent wrestler winning all the time. Often any guy who wins a WC or EC or AC finishes out of the medals the next time, in the next major championship. I was thinking that one could come up with a ranking system based upon points won over the past year or few years with more points given for the majors. It was definitely an educational experience & one that I would recommend.

    I got a guy with a decent shot at a medal in the last round, so I can't really complain. I think I took a few risks with my choices, but I'm cool with that. If Soslan Tigiev shows up at 74 kg, I'll be in a great mood.

    Haha axis of evil.

    I was a bit surprised by some of the other peoples early choices. It did give me the chance to snag a lot of the better Russians in freestyle.

    My strategy was simple Russian freestyle wrestlers and Iranian greco wrestlers. These two are the dominant powers in both sports right now. In greco I was particularly looking at how well they performed in the most recent championships and who they may have as sparring partners. Iran has the most depth right now.

    If Tsargush isn't your pick to take gold I'd be curious to know who is. It seems to me his only challenge right now is Goudarzi and he didn't have too much trouble with him last year.

    He's saying that Tsargush is his pick (although he probably wishes it wasn't the case) but that the other people on his team aren't.
