    Crazyer things may have happend at some point than Burroughs not making the team again, but at this point he's the best wrestler in the world. He's undefeated in international competition and just won an olympic gold

    Not saying its impossible he loses out, but it definitely doesn't seem like the smart bet at this point
    Gold is an idiot.

    It's a prediction. Meaning who I think it will be. It is of note that this thread is not called "Rio 2016 Olympic Team USA FS Locks You Would Bet Your Entire Families Eternal Soul On" Just predictions. I'll reiterate Snackems request for you to post your predictions.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    Will JB even be able to make 74kg in 4 years time?

    If they havent figured out how to beat Burroughs by 2016, Iran may just end everything and start A-bombing everyone.

    I don't have that confidence in Metcalf. Unfortunately I think he has peaked and will never be a serious Gold medal threat.
    I think someone like Oliver has more upside potential.

    You may be right, I just like watching him wrestle. I will be rooting for him to make the team over Oliver even if Oliver has a better chance to medal.
