    Default All-Excitement Team

    From a pure entertainment viewpoint, what would be the ideal gold medal matches at the Olympics?

    mine:
    55 kg- Lebedev vs North Korean. The Korean is a very aggressive wrestler, and Lebedev is one of the best p4p in the world. They had a wild matchup at the Yarygin a few years aga.

    60 kg- Kudukhov vs Asgarov. Asgarov may be the highest scoring freestyler on the world today.

    66 kg- anyone but Taghavi or the Japanese wrestler The Stadnik/Shahin matches in the past were epic but it might be past their time. Not sure who to pick here.

    74 kg- Burroughs vs Saitiev. The first Burroughs/Tsargush was epic too.

    84- if B Saitiev is back, I'd love to see him vs the Azeri world champion. If not, then the young Georgian Dato..

    96 kg- Gadisov vs Gayzumov.

    120 kg-- Dlagnev vs whoever- not too exciting at this weigh.

    While either match up would be epic are you talking about Buvaisar or Adam here?

    Adam- pretty sure Bouvaisar is commited to 84 kg.

    Adam beat Yoel Romero for both his titles at 84, who wrestles somewhat like Burroughs- lots of movement and crazy fast.

    I know all about Adam. I'd heard that he was possibly trying to make a comeback at 74, just wanted to verify.

    We'll probably see Gayzumov/Gadisov at the qualifier then.
    how many qualify per weight at the European one?

    Like at the other continental qualifying tourneys - the finalists.

    Gazyumov will not participate in Sofia. Another Ossetian will represent Aze there - Alborov.

    I think Lashagari is the favorite of the federation or at least of Khadem and some other important people there.

    Lash seems to have some psycho problems.
    * In the interviews he gave after beating (pinning) Sokhiev in the finals of the qualifying tourney, he said he beat him for the second time. In an interview published on the federation site, you can see this statement even in the title!!

    The match in the recent finals was actually his first and last match vs. Sokhiev. Obviously, he lied. But why did the federation publish the interview under this title?!
    * On both his personal and fan page in facebook, Lash uploaded a picture of him and Sokhiev showing the referee rising his arm after the win. There weren't any Iranian journalists at the tourney at all, and there isn't any single photo from that tourney. What Lash has uploaded is a photoshop production. ))) Professionally made. One may not realize it's not a real photo. Check it! In this picture, Lash's image (an that of the referee) is from a photo from the 2012 Asian championships in Korea; Sokhiev's image is from a photo from the 2010 worlds (vs. Ganev). Notice, the picture isn't a joke, it's a place where he proudly gets the congratulations of fans and friends.

    lol, You find everything.
    I'm sure your memory works well enough but I remember Lashgari beat Sokhiev once in past, can't remember when or where though.

    today Khadem announced the detail of his trial system, Only national team members in Asian Championships and Takhti Cup Gold medalists have chance.
    But he said he will give Masoumi another chance.
