    Default I love coach Jackson's comment

    ?We brought a younger group of athletes to see if they could compete against the best wrestlers in the world,? said Jackson.


    Well Abas is like 30 years old. Hrovat is at least 27. Mocco is at least 25. The rest of the guys are somewhere like 23-25 years old.

    Three of their Russian opponents were 22 years old or younger. Tsargush and Akhmedov are both 20 years old. Saidov has to be a young guy since I have not heard about him much and in Russia you are done at 25 if your name is not known by then. Mihailov is also around 25 or younger probably. The only older guys are Saitiev at 30 and Dudaev at 26.

    One could be considered *young* in the International scene as an American at 25 because much of their previous competition was in collegiate style, while the Russians that are 22-24 have competed only in Freestyle/Greco their entire lives.

    Less experienced then? Otherwise it is just silly.

    Yeah, definitely would have been better wording.

    Big always wants to pick at the Americans. America has a culture of older wrestlers. The age is relevant to the wrestling culture.
