    World International Wrestling rankings prepared by Iran and Bulgaria released through end of March

    International rankings prepared by Iran and Bulgaria released through end of March
    ISNA and Bulgarian Wrestling Federation
    04/07/2008

    A ranking of international wrestlers, developed by the Iranian Students News Agency and the Bulgarian Wrestling Federation, has been released. This ranking is based upon international competition through the end of March.

    This ranking uses a point system for determining the top athletes in the world in all three styles of Olympic wrestling.

    Points are awarded to athletes who place 1st through 5th in a variety of international tournaments. The point system is weighted, giving more points to the major events on the schedule.

    The base points for the year began with the 2007 World Championships in Azerbaijan, and will include the other major events during the rest of the season.

    The organizers of the ranking system plan to publish an international ranking every month during the season.

    I know so little about this area still that I couldn't argue either way.

    Yeah, Heskett has a heart condition but he is still a top wrestler in the rankings. Paulson hasn't beaten anyone really good but he is top 3 in the world. Saitiev is ranked 15th in the world. Williams is ranked ahead of Yazdani. Have they watched their match?

    It's based upon points from random tourneys so you can have the Sengalese wrestler @ 55 kg ranked ahead of the Russian who just won the Europeans last week, although these ranking were from the week before. Either way it's misleading, but I like their effort.

    this ranking is based on the results from all international tournaments from the calendar of FILA.The final result of this ranking will be anounced at the end of the year.the last rankings for march are based on the first 3 months of the year,in december we will have all tournaments and all points and then we will say who is the best;we made these rankings for second year,and in 2007 i think we had good results.
    Yes,we know that Hesket had problem with the heart and will not wrestle more,but he was a great man and wrestler and that is why we decided to leave him,at the end he will be not among the best,but for now he is still 5th from the last world championship and his place is in this rankings.I do not think that Poulson did not beat serious wrestlers-he won against the european champion Albert Batirov,won the tournament in Kiev,for the first 3 months of 2008 he is the best usa wrestler in this category.Saitiev won the tournament in Ulan Ude and for april he will be on better position,for now Williams is on better position than Yazdani,but tell me where wrestled Yazdani after the world championship?Williams won Pan american.I think that it is not correct to say that one wrestler is better than the other only from one tournament,there are a lot tournaments,Olympic Games,at the end of the year will see who is better,but for now Williams wrestled more and is with 6 points more than Yazdani.Dzamal Otarsultanov will be among the best for april,Wheeler is ranked on the same place as Gaber,i do not thiink that for now Gaber is one of the best wrestlers in this category,what did he won after 2004,we live in 2008 already!

    The rankings are based totally on points earned right, before the European Championships? If so, you're gonna get good wrestlers who compete a lot (Paulson?) ranked ahead of great wrestlers who don't (Saitievs)... That's just how it is. What would be really interesting is a comprehensive ranking based on opinion instead of points.
