    Saeed had lost to Gia over and over, slowly began to narrow the gap as Gia got older, and I guess he finally beat him at the right time.

    Okay.. I would just like to point out that Guivi wrestled that match. He lost it, Saeed did not win. Saeed just happend to be on the mat when Guivi lost to himself.

    First round was a terrible call on a misthrow with 20 seconds left, which led to a second round with Guivi getting a near fall on a throw. I would also like to state that Saeed followed his game plan very well " DO NOTHING " as he didn't have an offensive chances to score. The third round was decided when Guivi, not wanting to wrestle to clinch attempted a throw with little time left and got caught.

    It was not a good match for either wrestler, and should Saeed wrestle like this in the Olympics I doubt he will make it throught the first round.

    Too bad.
