    Default 2011 World Championships Discussion: Greco 60/84/120

    60
    Noroozi and Kuramogedov are here in the top quarter.

    Returning bronze medalist Jung is here in the second quarter, as is Lashkhi and Matsumoto.

    As much as I hate to say it I don't know anyone here in this third quarter.

    Betterman is here, he's got the guy from Venezuela in the first round and then he's looking at a likely second round match up against Dilshod Aripov. Overall bracket favorite Aliyev is here in this quarter as well

    84
    Lorincz and Khugaev are in the top quarter.

    Brutal first round match up here in this next quarter as Avluca and Akhlaghi draw each other in the first round.

    Haight is here in this quarter. He has the wrestler from Kyrgyzstan. Marinov is here, so is the Azeri wrestler.

    Olympic Champion Andrea Minguzzi is here in this bottom section, as is returning silver medalist Pablo Shorey Hernandez

    120
    Byers is here in the top quarter, he has Tinaliyev from Kazakhstan who I feel like he's wrestled one of these last two years.

    Kayaalp, Ivanov, and Deak Bardos are here in this quarter.

    I feel like I might have heard of Banak here in this section, the Polish wrestler. That's about it.

    Lopez is down in the bottom quarter. That bodes bad news for Patrikeev, and Babajanzadeh. Unless its one of those situations where he has a different name in the bracke than what he's normally known by Baroev isn't here for Russia. Name on the bracket is an "A. Aleksandr"

    Baroev is hurt.

    Terrible draw for my fantasy team- in addition to Avluca's draw, the Korean has Laskhi! Unbelievable. I could very well end up with no points from my greco guys, though if they win that first one they could go far. Hopefully being at home inspires Avluca.

    He is more than inspired. ))) He wants to become 3-times world champ. Turkish newspapers have been writing about this for the last 2 weeks.

    Akhlaghi lost to grandpa Avluca 0-1, 1-0, 1-0, no technical points , all from defending.
    according to Iranian commentators and IAWF website, this match was another miracle from FILA. no surprise against Turkey. it's a part of their culture.
    but I hope to see the video soon to judge by myself

    Neither FILA showing favoritism nor Iranian papers whining about officiating are surprising. I guess we'll have to watch a really boring match

    So according the the brackets last year's surprise champ wrestled two Koreans with the same name, winning once and losing once. What the heck? Is this for real?

    Bad day for USA Wrestling so far. Beyers, Haight, and Betterman all fall early.

    Lots of controversy in Byers match, TheMat article has more detail.

    Hate to sound like a one of those folkstyle "broken records" fans and maybe it's just lack of exposure, but this is why I can't get into the international styles nearly as much as folkstyle. Everything seems so arbitrary and the refs have so much control over who wins.

    Here's a video of the non-called gutwrench in question:

    Dremiel Byers score or no score? - YouTube

    My question is even if that gut is a non-call (I don't know enough to say) doesn't Byers opponent get the pushout because he grabbed his legs? How is that legal in Greco?

    Noroozi's final was awesome, I don't find greco too entertaining but the last period was crazy, 2 golds for iranian greco.
