    Default Key US wrestlers are missing from Yarigin tourney roster

    No Askren, no Williams, no Cormier, and no Mocco. While the Russians are selecting at this tourney top 3 in each weight to battle for Olympic spots, some Americans seem to be missing from a very important experience they can gain by wrestling. I don't get it.

    I hoped Kolat would be there as well.

    No Jared Frayer or Chris Bono, but I guess it is hard to pick since 66 is stacked, when is this tourny and does anyone know what russians are wrestling?

    Yarigin tourney will begin on January 24th. It should have most of the top Russian wrestlers participating BECAUSE Russian coaches will be selecting top 3 or so wrestlers in each weight depending on their performance there on whom they will concentrate preparation for Olympic Games.

    Also the Russian who wins Yarygin usually represents Russia at the European Championships.
