    Default Mo Lawal is good but Olympic Gold?

    Lets face it Lawal would need a miracle to even medal at Olympics.

    He lost to Hahn. He lost a period to Hasseman. He also had a very close match with Hrovat. These results are just not top 4 Olympic material.

    Joe Williams beat Hrovat last year and remember what Ketoev and Yazdani did to him?

    good thing that "miracles" seem to happen in abundance at every Olympics.

    He did beat Mindorashvili to win the Uzbekistan Cup. Mindo was the defending world champ.

    He might have lost a step since then.

    Besides, around the time Lawal beat Mindorashvili, Mindo also competed at Europeans and went 0 and 2.
