    Default Observations of Kiev Grand Prix

    HWT seems like the best weight so far. 3 of the top 5 finishers finished at least top 5 in the Woirld at one point with Mussulbes winning Worlds and Olympics. Shemarov is also solid. Mocco was either tired from World Cup or he has much work to do. These were still 2nd tier guys from last year's Worlds.

    66kg: Great win for Paulson. However, he had way too many close matches. The weight itself seems pretty weak. Top 5 finishers are all pretty unknown on the Senior level. Dzhaparov of Russia was a Junior World champ though. Lets see if Paulson holds up well when he has to make scratch weight.

    In the 96 final, Gogshelidze easily beat Moradi/Ganji.

    Who was the Iranian that destroyed Cormier last year at Worlds?

    Shemarov wasn't better than Musulbes. Musulbes dominated but... he actually pinned himself while performing a throw.

    Not this one. Cormier got beaten by Said Ebrahimi.

    Lawal beat Moradi/Ganji in the final of the Takhti tourney a year ago.

    Here is Moradi at the last year World cup:

    That would be much easier to believe if Mussulbes placed 3rd rather than 5th.

    I don't know what happened after the pin in the semis. Maybe Musulbes withdrew. ???

    But last time I saw him pinned (2005 Dan Kolov tourney), he didn't withdraw. He wrestled for the 3rd place there.

    No we don't know. What we know about the 84 class is that the Laliev bros. Gennadi and Vadim wrestled each other. Caucasian bros. wrestling each other is a rare thing.
