    Default Crazy good competition is coming up

    That CSKA Cup in Russia is coming up in a few days. Supposed to be many of the best wrestlers from all the best wrestling nations there. Total prize is $200K.

    The Russian team has everyone from 2007 worlds listed as competing except Ketoev. Sajidov is listed instead.

    The competition will all happen on Dec 1st in a world cup type of format. Then, Team Russia vs team World will be held as well later in the evening of the same day.

    In this format, it is the first time.

    For the last 10 years the CSKA club has wrested several times in duals at the European Cup and it won it 3 times. When participating, of course, they hosted duals. But this time it is the first time they are going to do something bigger and more opulent.

    Russia will wrestle the Island of Freedom (Cuba) and Uzbekistan. USA will wrestle Ukraine and Turkey.

    The winners of each group will meet in the finals.

    Russians are a bit worried about their 1st round matchup with Cuba because it might be very well prepared and motivated by the large financial prize.

    I can't find anything that lists who the U.S. wrestlers will be in this event. I know Mike Zadick is going at 60kg and Doug Schwab at 66kg, but that's about it. Does anyone else have a link or info on who we are sending?
