    Is FILA kidding? Again, look at the bottom bracket of 55. It's stacked. Why don't they just give medals to the people they want to instead of going through the whole formality of actually wrestling???

    On a positive note, it looks as if we'll be able to get video for this qualifier.

    I believe that the wrestlers draw lots as they weigh in for placement on the bracket. It is a blind draw system. They are not just placed on the bracket. At least this is the way it was always done when I competed, and I do not believe that there has been a change in the procedure.

    Well then the all the planets must be aligning with all the statistically improbably coin tosses for Team Russia at last year's worlds and heavily stacked brackets at the Euros and now the qualifiers.

    No. No cheating going on in this sport. Never.

    Yeah no tampering there. Takatsuka has Ribalta 1st round and the winner there will face a very good Hungarian and then that winner will face the winner of Mohammadi/Zadick in the 1/4s. There is literally nobody noteworthy in the top bracket aside from the dude from France.

    I thought Pais (FRA) already qualified from the Euros?
